ath5k seems to be solid. In all my testing it proved to be stable, even
with injection. However last time I checked they still didn't support
Master mode. According to linuxwireless they still don't
supports this for ages of course. The Turbo and Super modes are also
present even in the cheapest of cards, probably not commonly used, but
I also want to mention the BBS topic on kernel panics on Acer machines
(http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=73877). It seems to be a bug
in the wmi driver which affects acer-wmi when stack protection is
enabled. Patch is available somewhere on the LKML and is waiting to go
upstream. It would be good to warn users to blacklist acer_wmi when this
kernel goes out of testing.
