In that case you have to enable xpci/pci at first.

Including "std.ath_hal" means that you pull in ath device code in your
kernel.  But you don't have no parent buses.  This might be OK for
ath(4), but in general, it means that config(1) doesn't resolve
dependency, and your kernel may be bloated by unnecessary code.

(config(1) is not great in reporting dependency errors yet.)
