I just ported the net80211 stack and the atheros device driver from
latest FreeBSD (with sam's latest HAL) 2 weeks ago.

My cardbus AR5008-3NX interface seems working well (except 11n support).

However, because the difference of 80211 suport codes between NetBSD and
FreeBSD is so large, this update needs to change in various parts of
current code. (And also this patch needs more work to be stable...).
