ath5k is not quite there yet- I know it is missing support for the Eee
chipset among others.

If we use an SVN snapshot instead of the horribly outdated release,
everything should work. I didn't need any patching to get it to
compile against my Eee kernel.

With that said, I have never really used or tested the madwifi we ship
with Arch because the default HAL isn't compatible with the Eee
chipset. That is why the above PKGBUILD uses the hal- snapshot
