athp now loads correctly with the modules present and loader variable set:

[2.5.0-DEVELOPMENT][root@apu.stevew.lan]/root: cat /boot/loader.conf.local
if_athp_load="yes" 

[2.5.0-DEVELOPMENT][root@apu.stevew.lan]/root: kldstat

The driver is still in active development. ifconfig does not yet support 802.11AC mode.

Tested against: pfSense-2.5.0.a.20190820.1737
