  I've tried enabling SWCONFIG_LEDS and adding ucidef_set_led_switch
but could ntot make it work. And it also doesn't seem to produce any
log output. Is SWCONFIG_LEDS known to work with mt7621 switch? Is
there something else I need to do to enable it?
  Would this patch be acceptable without leds working? I will see if I
can make them work later.

>> Note: factory image is only built if initramfs image is enabled.
> Most of these info should go to a wiki page for the device.

  I was hoping to have these saved in commit message first and then
see if I can create/update wiki page for this device.

  I have other requested changes sitting it my git, so if lack of leds
support is fine I'll resubmit.
