It's entirely possible that AR2417 is indeed unsupported. But you can
try a snapshot with the latest HAL:
I see it has AH_SUPPORT_2417 in i386-elf.opt_ah.h, so chances are that
it would work. Also, you could post some information about your card,
such as the kernel messages produced by the driver (MAC revision would
be interesting) and the PCI ID of the card (use "lspci -vnn" so that
number IDs and the subsystem ID are shown).
