Hi!

I'm sorry I haven't figured out the AR9227 stuff; I've been really
busy at work lately and I'm behind on some freebsd stuff.

When using the MIMO chips (AR5416 and later, EXCEPT the AR9285/AR9485,
they're special) the antenna profile side of things doesn't really
count. That's a hold-over from when manual antenna selection occured.
It really doesn't mean anything here.

The AR9285 and AR9485 are different - they're 1x1 chips (so not really
MIMO) and they do some funky antenna switching and mixing. So those
values do actually mean something.
