Atheros WLAN driver not auto-detected

The Atheros AR242x/AR542x is not auto-detected. Maybe an advanced user can fix that after installation, but for novice users this is a blocker.
In my case it means I have to try the installation w/ ethernet, try to enable WLAN once the system is properly installed, and if it does not work go back to Linux. Not very attractive.

There have been a number of Atheros driver improvements to FreeBSD 9.2, please re-test with the newer images and see if this is still an issue.
