Hi all,

I have rearranged the previous 80211 patch:
1) Apply this patch at /usr/src, don't forget -p0 in `patch'.  It
should apply cleanly to HEAD or PREVIEW
2) You will need to at least quickkernel if you have tried previous
patch.  If you have not applied previous patch, you will have to
buildworld and buildkernel
3) Please don't forget "option INVARIANTS" in you kernel config file
Sorry for being late, but I'm having some problem with your latest patch 
and ath(4). Just to check that I haven't missed something basic this is 
what I did:

1. Downloaded a fresh copy of Preview
2. In /usr/src did patch -p0 < /tmp/802_11.diff3
3. Made world and kernel and all that
4. Reboot
5. Extracted ath.tbz in /tmp
6. in /tmp/ath did make
7. kldload ath_hal
8. kldload ath_rate
9. kldload if_ath (which panics the system)
I've tried without ACPI to no avail, and it's 100% reproducable. I've 
put a photo of the panic at www.itstud.chalmers.se/~eriwik/ath along 
with a verbose dmesg. If there is anything else you need just ask and 
I'll try to produce it.
