Seems to be working great! Here's my shell function for doing this:

Kismet() {
if test `whoami` = 'root'; then
rmmod ath_pci || return 1
modprobe ath_pci autocreate=none || return 1
sleep 2
rmmod ath_pci
modprobe ath_pci
echo All restored
echo You need to be root to do this. Sudo:
sudo bash -i -c Kismet
