Playing with an ath card
A friend of mine is testing some Linux WiFi stuff at the local
University's Computing Center, and we went to try out NetBSD with
an Atheros card today. An experience made was that the card isn't
easily set to the german frequency modes, even though there is a
sysctl present for it. The solution was to make sure that
CTRY_DEFAULT gets initialized to 276 in contrib/sys/dev/ic/athhal.h.
Now unfortunately no "turbo" modes are available in -current as of
today, while 2.0_BETA finds and lists them both in "dmesg" and
"ifconfig -m". Doh!
