SRU justification:

Impact: Upstream contained a patch that added a check for bogus
EEPROM checksums to the ath5k driver but it seems to have missed the fact
that custom EEPROMs might be different in size.

Fix: Upstream patch which was added to but not carried over to
2.6.31.y adds code to query and work with differently sized EEPROMS.

Testcase: Bring up certain hw with custom EEPROM. Verified in the report.
