Hartmut, thanks for your input and help, it is always welcome.

I agree that ath9k GPIO chip should be visible regardless of
LED and/or button presence, I wanted to implement this later,
but it seems quite stable now so here it is - changed as requested.

I spent some time reorganizing patches to form more logical
entities - at least IMHO each of them is now providing complete
functionality, enhancement or fix. Due to changed structure, I
decided to attach all new patches to this thread, not to old ones.

I have also adjusted text formatting. Everything fits 80 cols.

Applied to r48508, compiled, it works. The only thing that has changed
from last trunk build is minor issue - it appears that empty PACKAGES
line in netgear.mk is not working anymore. USB modules sneaked
somehow into build image for my WNR2000v3 so for now there is only 108K
left in /overlay.
