That's great and all, but it's worth a clarifying mention that this does
not affect GTA02 - the AR6K is a different beast from the madwifi
supported chips. It does in (proprietary) firmware much of what the
laptop Atheroses do in driver code. The Linux-side kernel driver is
completely free to start with, which is pretty much the reason AR6K was
picked for GTA02.
