OK, I didn't really check this, but it removing ath from the kernel
config file really cause all ath-related files to be ommitted, then there's
no reason to not have std.ath_hal inclued by default.

One can still use "no options ..." if he really wants to strip down
the kernel with only the required ath bits.
