NetBSD 7.0_BETA NetBSD 7.0_BETA (GENERIC.201408121640Z) amd64

my NoteBook (Acer Extensa 5635Z) has an internal wifi mpcie card from Atheros (AR9281). According the athn manual page this driver should works with this chipset. 

From dmesg:

athn0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0
athn0: cannot map register space

NetBSD pcictl says it is a AR9281. OpenIndiana scanpci -v says it is a AR9283. That is strange.
This card works with the arn driver on OpenIndiana Hipster (Current). 

Please let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

ifconfig -a does not list the athn0 interface.
