Your config works for me with 17.01.3. kmod-ath9k is selected as build-in.

I'm using 17.01.3 on a different xrx200 board with ath9k and ath10k 
without the reported issue. The PCI_SUPPORT flag is derived from the 
kernel config (CONFIG_PCI?) which is the same for all xrx200 boards.

Something in your local tree/build_dir is most likely dirty. Try to 
remove the tmp/ dir and if it doesn't fix the issue do a distclean.

Btw. your config looks a bit more custom than necessary to me. Could it 
be that you are using the same .config instead only the output of 
./scripts/diffconfig.sh + make defconfig as base for new builds?
