Add initial support for Archer C2600 to Makefiles and profiles along with
needed modifications to tplink-safeloader in firmware-tools.  The device
tree file is similar to the current ap148 dts, with sata and nand removed,
and buttons/led's added.  This is sufficient to build a working factory
image flashable both from stock web ui and bootloader tftp recovery.
Sysupgrade is working as well.  There is a patch added here to ath10k to
bypass some checks on startup.  I believe this is related to the
calibration data being provided in external files (dumped from the ART mtd
partition at init time) rather than directly from the pcie board.  The
patch and related discussion is from here:
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/ath10k/2015-November/006489.html, but
will follow up further on the ath10k list, since it may also be related to
the board bin files in ath10k-firmware.

Working: Wired network, wireless (both bands), power/status/lan/wan/usb

Not working: wireless status led's (these are not controlled through gpio,
but rather through the QCA9980 pcie chips).  Also there is no way to set
the wan led to orange, which is possible in the stock firmware.

Not tested: Hardware buttons.
