You definitely reboot too often.  All you should have needed to do
is make your changes to blacklist the ath5k module, and tell it to
use the ath_pci module. Run:

modprobe -r ath4k	- Just in case it is loaded.
depmod			- Let the kernel know about the changes.
modprobe ath_pci	- Load the new module.

You may be able to run "depmod -A" instead of depmod, and save some
time, but I am not sure that will pick up the change in blacklist.
