The erroneous 0xFFFF value comes from using one of eeprom_ops
implementations. Do you suggest I should fool ath regd code to think
this is a different card so it picks a different (perhaps correct, if
at all) eeprom_ops variant? How do I do that?

have a value other than 0xFFFF for this device in this code path.

Or am I missing something?
