Both proposals look sane to me. I had suggested the other order of the
ehternet drivers exactly because bge(4) is the way more complex hardware,
but in the end it does not make a big difference for the changes you would
need to make (I guess, not being familiar with either).

For athn there is the additional complexity of the usb variant - if you
can not test pci/cardbus but only usb (or vice versa) you should state
that explicitly [modify the goal accordingly]. There is no real difference
(from the drivers point of view) between cardbus and pci, but usb needs
slightly different handling.
