I have a few patches to upgrade the HAL and the ath(4) driver. As of
now, it builds, but there is still a few FIXME in ath(4) I need to
fix. I'd hope to be able to send a set of patches later on before
going to sleep, as a starting point. They will be based on 5.99.25. I
will be unlikely to test anything tonight. Moreover, the current
FreeBSD HAL seems to have forgotten about  ar5212/ar231{6,7}.c, so
they will need more care.

So far, there isn't much intrusive change to the 802.11 stack, so that
should go smooth.
