I'm using the madwifi-hal- version driver. It seems it was specifically built both for AA1 and some models of Asus EeePC with the same chipset. With this driver, you're able to set your device to RF mode. Once you've the driver working normally, you will use wifi0 as your source in Kismet's configuration file: source=madwifi_g,wifi0,whatever

You'll have to disable (blacklist) or uninstall ath5k. Besides the fact you're using both ath_pci and ath5k at the same time, which is incorrect I suppose, you're probably not using the ath_pci version I mentioned above. In the directory "scripts" of the madwifi source code, you have 2 important bash scripts to use. The first to unload all madwifi modules in current memory and the other to uninstall the said unwanted drivers.

Best of luck!
