I have not looked at the version of the driver being mentioned here but if it is based on an earlier GPL release from Atheros, then you might find some feature additions and bug fixes in this version of the driver. The ath6kl driver now supports AR6003 (the latest version of the chip) and has addressed some shortcomings based on the feedback from the shipping customers and internal QA. Some of these fixes or enhancements may have also gone in the firmware which can only work with this version of the driver and the chip.
