Actually, NetBSD and FreeBSD have completely different ieee80211_ioctl
routines.  Somebody in FreeBSD diddled with ours (an easy mistake to
make), and somehow I overlooked the diff.

Anyway, I had not seen this bug myself because my null mounts of the
imported sources went away a few days ago, but I did not notice until
today.  I'm sorry for telling people that I could not reproduce the bug!

I am dedicating the next few days to working on ath/net80211.
