Noted with an AR5418 abgn part, on a MacBook, in reference to #1962

Environment: Ubuntu hardy/amd64. r3680

athstats reports

Antenna profile:
[0] tx      499 rx     3266

However, setting 0 for rxantenna or txantenna results in "auto" mode (as detailed here), rather than selection of the 0th antenna.

That's a HAL limitation... you have to wait until Atheros/Sam Leffler/Brainslayer are able to provide a new one.
