ath5k is still pretty immature; it hasn't worked for me with
wpa_supplicant/NM and only recently stopped hanging the machine on even
a plain 'ifup' at boot time.  I'll have a go at seeing whether or not
this is an NM, wpa_supplicant, or driver problem.  But just know that it
may be rocky with ath5k for a while since it's still under really heavy
development, about where mac80211 itself was this spring.
