Subject[patch 46/58] ath5k: fix buffer overrun in rate debug code
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Bob Copeland <me@bobcopeland.com>

commit b7fcb5c4a4c27da2f6d86cb03d18687e537442cf upstream.

char bname[5] is too small for the string "X GHz" when the null
terminator is taken into account. Thus, turning on rate debugging
can crash unless we have lucky stack alignment.
