Subject[patch 76/88] ath9k: implement IO serialization
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Luis R. Rodriguez <lrodriguez@atheros.com>

This is a port of:
commit SHA1 6158425be398936af1fd04451f78ffad01529cb0
for 2.6.28.

All 802.11n PCI devices (Cardbus, PCI, mini-PCI) require
serialization of IO when on non-uniprocessor systems. PCI
express devices not not require this.

This should fix our only last standing open ath9k kernel.org
bugzilla bug report:
