We (Jay Cliburn, the other atl1 maintainer, and I) just got a huge code dump 
from Atheros.  We're currently working to integrate it into a unified atlx 
codebase to support atl1, atl2, and future chips from Atheros that are based on 
the same hardware.  We're hoping to get this in 2.6.25.  Anyone with an atl2 
chip who wants to help test should contact me off-list.
