Description Joachim Frieben 2007-11-19 10:48:22 EST
Description of problem:
After loading kernel module ath5k.ko on a system equipped with a DWL-G520
WLAN adapter sporting an AR5212 chipset, no corresponding device ath0 is

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system into single user mode.
2. Load ath5k.ko [modprobe ath5k].
Actual results:
dmesg reports "ath_pci 0000:01:0a.0: can't get channels
  ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:01:0a.0 disabled
  ath_pci: probe of 0000:01:0a.0 failed with error -22"

Expected results:
  Module ath5k.ko is loaded, and the corresponding device gets created.

Additional info:
  This used to work better for 2.6.23.x kernels, see bug 254192, where
  the device was created correctly, and only DHCP failed to establish a
  working network connection.
