AR6004, firmware-5, and HT mode?

I'm doing a bit of testing on an AR6004 NIC.
First thing I noticed is that it does not advertise
HT rates, because the ATH6KL_FW_CAPABILITY_RSN_CAP_OVERRIDE is not set.
I'm using the latest HW3.0 fw-5.bin firmware from the ath6kl-firmware repo.
Can this firmware really not handle HT mode?
Here is some dmesg output, including a debug line I put in to
figure out why HT wasn't enabled:
[root at ath6k-ct520 lanforge]# dmesg|grep ath6k
