     ath_hal --	Atheros	Hardware Access	Layer (HAL)

     device ath_hal

     The ath_hal module	provides hardware support for wireless network
     adapters based on the Atheros AR5210, AR5211, and AR5212 chips.  This
     module is required	by the ath(4) driver.

     Devices supported by the ath_hal module come in either Cardbus or mini-
     PCI packages.  The	following cards	are among those	supported by the
     ath_hal module:
