Sorry about that.
I'm progressing but I more and more sure that it's linked to modules which are not loaded at boot.
I have fixed all issues on unknown symbols when I have loaded the cfg80211 module. It could be possible that by default I do not have all modules loaded to manage wireless support.
For the moment, I have manually loaded cfg80211, wlan, ath_* and all modules are loaded without error. I still not have my interface seen but issues are fixed.

It would be nice if you wrote everything in one message. It's hard to understand what you have downloaded and patched. I believe you should not have to patch the current snapshot from the 0.9.4 branch:
If you are having compile problems with it, please let me know. I'll try to fix it.

Please don't rephrase error messages. It makes it harder to find out what is going on. It's better that you give one error message exactly as is.
I believe you may have some modules loaded from another version of MadWifi. You can run madwifi-unload or reboot the system to make sure those modules are not loaded. I hope you are using "make install" to install the modules.
