Subject[163/165] ath5k: initialize ah->ah_current_channel
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Bob Copeland <me@bobcopeland.com>

commit b6855772f4a22c4fbdd4fcaceff5c8a527035123 upstream.

ath5k assumes ah_current_channel is always a valid pointer in
several places, but a newly created interface may not have a
channel. To avoid null pointer dereferences, set it up to point
to the first available channel until later reconfigured.

This fixes the following oops:
$ rmmod ath5k
$ insmod ath5k
$ iw phy0 set distance 11000

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000006
