Atheros cards do not use firmware, so I would assume this "firmware" is
just refering to a new NDIS driver.

In general, I would recommend using native Linux drivers when possible.
Both madwifi and ndiswrapper support WPA2.

I have tested that successfully with both madwifi and ndiswrapper using
Atheros cards and with Host AP driver and Prism2/2.5/3 cards.
