Linux has a useful 3-clause BSD file:

If we stripped that file of everything except the AR_SREV_REVISION_9*
and AR_SREV_VERSION_9* macros, prefixed the chipset numbers with the
abbreviated name of the manufacturer (AR or QCA), I think we'd have all
that's needed to still compile the FreeBSD driver.
