Atheros driver

I was wondering if there's any working/semi-working driver for the atheros
chipset, especially the 5212. I've just installed DragonFly on my T41 and
everything seems to work fine (that I need anyway) except the wireless.

There has been some discussion regarding this driver and  Andrew Atrens had
some lightly tested port, found at http://www.ncf.ca/~fd473/.

Joerg Sonnenberger had a patch for the driver from OpenBSD (if I understood
correctly).

It was also possible to use the NDIS driver, but if possible I'd like to use
a native one. I don't have any hight demands, if I can just connect to an AP
that will be enought.
