cfg80211 isn't loading, so mac80211 can't find it's symbols, and
ath5k can't find mac80211's symbols.

config WIRELESS_OLD_REGULATORY
bool "Old wireless static regulatory definitions"
default n
---help---
This option enables the old static regulatory information
and uses it within the new framework. This is available
temporarily as an option to help prevent immediate issues
due to the switch to the new regulatory framework which
does require a new userspace application which has the
database of regulatory information (CRDA) and another for
setting regulatory domains (iw).
For more information see:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Regulatory/CRDA
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw

It is important to note though that if you *do* have CRDA present
and if this option is enabled CRDA *will* be called to update the
regulatory domain (for US and JP only). Support for letting the user
set the regulatory domain through iw is also supported. This option
mainly exists to leave around for a kernel release some old static
regulatory domains that were defined and to keep around the old
ieee80211_regdom module parameter. This is being phased out and you
should stop using them ASAP.

Say N unless you cannot install a new userspace application
or have one currently depending on the ieee80211_regdom module
parameter and cannot port it to use the new userspace interfaces.

This is scheduled for removal for 2.6.29.

Is this not clear enough?
