Do you know if the on-chip MAC is a "full MAC"?

Last time I used an Atheros-based Wifi card (for an AP application) the
predominant Linux driver - Madwifi - relied on binary in-kernel modules
(ath_hal).  Is that still the case (for this chip)?

Sean, given the uncertainty surrounding Wifi drivers, would an
externally-accessible SDIO slot be a better step for the next hw revision?
