Two questions:
1. Where might these custom parameters be located? 
2. Why would they affect the ath5k device when my madwifi setup refers
to device ath0?

I have not compiled the madwifi driver for the new kernel, and the only
reference to the ath5k device in modprobe.conf is the line
   options ath5k autocreate=sta
