Pavel,
 
I look at my /etc/modprobe.conf:
 
it has alias wifi0 ath_pci instead of
alias ath0 ath_pci
Does it matter?

It seems to me that scanning is currently broken in master mode. It's
working in managed mode. I don't think using "insmod *.ko" is a good
idea. Try this instead:

modprobe ath_pci autocreate=sta
