First, thanks a lot for making this available. I'm glad to know someone
is working on supporting this chip in linux. Now, on to my problem.
Here's the output you requested:

I've got a IBM Thinkpad T40 (2373-92U) with an IBM Dual Band wireless
mini-pci card, manufactured by Philips, and of course using the atheros
5211 chip. pic id is 168c:0012 (rev 01) When I'm in windows, I press
fn-F5, and a window comes up allowing me to turn on the wireless radio.
Once I restart into linux, it's off. Pressing fn-F5 only affects
bluetooth in linux, not the wireless card. Is the ability to turn this
on somewhere in the driver? I played around a little with iwconfig's
txpower and didn't get anything to really work. Do you have ideas, or
is this something that may be included in a future version? Or is it
IBM silliness and I'm out of luck?
