ath9k_htc is provided by compat-wireless and not taken from normal
kernel. The compat-wireless version in trunk is based on a version more
recent than 4.4 independent of the kernel actually in use. You can
assume that the ath9k_htc driver is similar to the one used in kernel
4.5 for all OpenWrt kernels in trunk.
