Dave,

Please pull these fixes for the 3.8 stream.

Gabor Juhos provides and rt2x00 fix to properly clear-out the skb->cb
for reporting tx_status.  Recent changes made this necessary where it
previously was not.

Vladimir Kondratiev gives us a fix for a build issue that caused some
ath9k devices to be skipped in the build based on unrelated config
choices.

Please let me know if there are problems!

Thanks,

John
