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)

These are not correct, you are using the ath(4) in /modules
Please add path name when loading the modules:
cd /tmp/ath
kldload ./ath/hal/ath_hal
kldload ./ath/rate_sample/ath_rate
kldload ./ath/ath/if_ath
Or you can copy above three modules into /modules

The ath_hal version is:
ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
Not as shown in the photo of crash, so I am quite sure you
are using the wrong modules
