A huge vote of thanks and congratulations are due to Atheros for
taking the step of releasing the HAL. There will be many in the open
source community celebrating this move.

Much Kudos is due to Atheros for taking this step.

The ath5k community is going to benefit hugely from being able to optimise
the driver based on a more accurate knowledge of the workings of the HAL.

Patches like
https://lists.ath5k.org/pipermail/ath5k-devel/2008-September/001311.html
will improve the reliability, and are only possible because of the release
of the HAL.

Thanks are due to Luis also, for taking his part in getting the HAL
released.

Perhaps we can all now work together on getting a stable driver for
Atheros cards under Linux. - Ath5k or Ath9k (don't care which).

Derek.
