To be clear, that is all part of the hal issue that needs to be
resolved.  Removing the hal abstraction is not difficult for an
interested party once source for the hal is available.  The next step
in such an effort would be to add an open hal to dadwifi, IMO.

P.S. Actually, it isn't clear to me that removing the hal entirely is
a good idea.  Abstractions exist for practical reasons.  The hal
allows dadwifi to support a variety of Atheros chips without needing
to worry about the specific details of each chip.
