Actually, this is more annoying than I'd thought. There's a whole
bunch of places where mbufs can change during processing in ath(4) and
yeah, we can't guarantee the original mbuf is available.

I wonder how many other drivers are doing this - stuff like
m_collapse(), m_defrag(), etc. If this is called then the original
mbuf can't be returned upon error.

I'm torn as to whether to back out the mbuf API change and have the
driver consume it, or whether we want to go through the pain of fixing

Let's figure this out ASAP.
