I'm not in a position to help, but I can explain a couple of things.

This tells you that the module in question has already been loaded, or 
is present in the kernel.

The 'none..' tells you that no driver was attached to the device.

I suspect that Alexander Kapshuk's reply is relevant here: that your 
Atheros card is not supported by the driver.

I know it's not much help, but maybe it's nonzero. Good luck.
