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.
Please try the new tar ball(ath.tbz) on leaf, the problem actually was
resolved several days ago, but I forgot to throw it onto leaf :P
