Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-restricted-modules-generic

I upgraded from Dapper to Edgy yesterday (I figured with the release
being imminent, it should be fairly bug free). The upgrade went well, I
was provided with -386 and -generic kernels as I hadn't got round to
removing -386 from my old Dapper install.

The problem I now face is that my Atheros WiFi chipset only works with
the new -386 kernel. If I boot into -generic, the ath_pci module can't
be loaded either automatically or via modprobe.

I've done a fresh aptitude update/dist-upgrade today just in case
there's a last minute fix for this, but there were no upgrades for
anything kernel related.
