In 2.6.35 drivers are added to the kernel and the firmware is already loaded in /lib/firmware/ar9271.fw so it makes for less steps.

Install linux headers.
download compat-wireless-2.6.35-1.tar.bz2 from http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download/stable/

Code:
# vi drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/hif_usb.c

add line 
ATH9K_FW_USB_DEV(0xb003, "ar9271.fw"),


# ./scripts/driver-select ath9k_htc
#make 
#make install
