ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
wlan: (svn r2435)
ath_pci: (svn r2435)
low) -> IRQ 20
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:03:00.0 to 64
MadWifi: HAL ABI mismatch; driver expects 0x7013100, HAL reports 0x6090700
