            Bug ID: 198670
           Summary: Log if there is an invalid ID with ath(4) at bootup
                    preventing driver from attaching
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: wireless
          Assignee: freebsd-wireless@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: c...@pfsense.org

Opening at Adrian's request. 

If an ath(4) card doesn't get its initial power on config from EEPROM, the
driver doesn't attach. This is usually some power up reset bug in how the BIOS
sets up the PCI bus. The PC Engines APU appears to do this at times, seemingly
only with an older BIOS rev that was buggy in that regard. 

from Adrian: "I'll go see if I can at least have the driver explain why that's
an invalid id at boot up"
