Default Atheros AR9485 driver(?)

I've taken a look through the 5.8 new features list, & through the 6 - Networking page, & can't find any info about a driver for this card.

Does anyone know if it is in the pipeline for a driver to be written for this card?

(I am currently using a usb wifi using the urtwn driver, so just looking for any info.)

Thank you for the link - seems like two people have tried, but with no luck.

If it makes you feel better, I had no luck either--even tried CURRENT.

It does work (now) with FreeBSD, but didn't till 10.x

I have another Atheros card that works under FreeBSD as well, but with OpenBSD it doesn't yet, perhaps one of the 'devs' will look into their code in the near future. We can only hope.
