I am still doing testing with my atheros card, and will report back
soon - but just reading part of this thread, reminded me of something
i found while doing the last set.
It appears you must must load the modules in the correct order...and
the following worked well for me:
A couple of times, i managed to pull ath_rate out from under if_ath (i
was testing the different rate agorithms), and after loading the new
rate module and doing ifconfig ath0 up scan the machine paniced and
dropped me a debugger prompt. So I think your right, it might be a
module dependency issue - i guess if_ath needs to be unloaded if any
of the other modules get unloaded?
Thing is, since those files were just for testing, I guessed that when
they got integrated into the kernel tree as modules that issue would
go away.
Cheers, Alex J Burke.
