I volunteer to maintain au1000. The only devices I have are MTX-1
though, but I believe there are not many other au1000 boards out in the
wild anyways.

I don't know how to fix the sysupgrade issue. Basically the name used in
AA was wrong (ROOTFS_IMG="openwrt-au1000-au1500-jffs2-128k.fs") and this
has been chnaged to something more generic in BB
(ROOTFS_IMG="openwrt-au1000-au1500-root.fs"). sysupgrade from BB to BB
works OK, but the problem is upgrade from AA to BB, where the ROOTFS_IMG
names in the tar do not match.

The only solutions I can think of are, none of which I find really good:

	1) Keep on using the old (wrong) name for all image types
	2) Provide a symlink with the old name for upgrade from AA to BB
	3) Add backwards compatibility code to /lib/upgrade/platform.sh

Any other ideas?

What are the other things that are missing for au1000 in BB?
