No. It's not specific to a particular driver, there is no support in
the ieee80211(9) layer yet.

You are right, this list is out of date and doesn't even list some
supported drivers (e.g. ahci), let alone devices.
I don't think we can hope to maintain a full list of particular hardware
models here (the driver manpages are probably the best place for these),
but we should at least list all the drivers.
I would welcome a diff to add any missing drivers present in GENERIC,
and possibly also remove some of the particular hardware models in
favour of a note suggesting that people follow the links to driver
manpages for more information. Most if not all changes made to i386
would also apply to amd64 and maybe some other arch.
