Last I checked, none of these were 100% open source. I am certain this
is true for Atheros, but IIRC it's also the case for the other two?

Anyway, WRT RealTek, they gave me (and others) docs. If I can locate a
card, I'll do a driver (or merge an existing one, if any). RealTek's
been pretty supportive of open source in the past, what with
8139too/8139cp/r8169 stuff.
