Luis _has_ done a great job. Having dealt with Atheros in another life,
I can appreciate the mountains he's moved.

I would also offer my appreciation to those unnamed, enlightened
individuals within Atheros that made this possible. Nothing would please
me more then to be able to drop the madwifi HAL in favor of full support
from ath5k.
