Any real reason for this besides the fact that it is newer and sexier?
It is also slower, and I doubt we have many Arch users that need the
benefits of a slightly smaller compressed kernel on disk (esp since it
all needs to be unpacked in memory anyway).

+1 to this from me. I know I ditched madwifi a while back in favor of ath5k.

I'm not sure if I'm ready to signoff on everything yet, but looking
good so far on x86_64 with the radeon driver that finally supports
DRI/Xv on my video card.
