Upgrade to new ck kernel - bye bye madwifi (SOLVED)

I made it through the enormo upgrade with only a few issues.  I was able to install and run a copy of madwifi that worked beautifully.  This morning, I did the mini-upgrade (mostly KDE, but also a new CK kernel).  After this, my madwifi connection has disappeared.  No ath0 available.  BTW, I'm using a Cisco 802.11a/b/g card.

So, I reinstall madwifi, then:

[root@bobarch bpisciot]# depmod -a
[root@bobarch bpisciot]# modprobe ath_pci
FATAL: Module ath_pci not found.

Here's my lsmod:

Re: Upgrade to new ck kernel - bye bye madwifi (SOLVED)

Sorry for the noise.  I very stupidly updated from the madwifi package that was compiled against the previous CK kernel--rather than remake the package from scratch with the PKGBUILD.  Of course that won't work.

So, I took my existing PKGBUILD, re-made the package, updated via pacman, and BOOM, my wireless is back.
