Madwifi (NG), Karma and AirCrack

As promised, here are my ebuilds for gentoo to support the Atheros madwifi drivers with support for Karma and AirCrack-NG. Both old-style Madwifi and Madwifi-NG versions in case you like to use the older drivers.
I run my laptop with this patched madwifi-NG version all the time and haven't had any problems that I know of. Of course if things DO freak out I keep the distfiles around so I can just emerge -C madwifi-ng-karma and emerge -av madwifi-ng .. rmmod ath_pci; modprobe -a ath_pci and i'm back in business.

Gentoo really is a hackers linux distro.
