[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH] firmware-utils mktplinkfw: print amount of exceeding bytes

My comments weren't a critique of your patch, and probably belong in a
separate thread, or even a bug report on dev.openwrt.org.

Apparently the behavior my machine is showing is not the normal or intended
behavior. On my machine (Fedora 22, but also had the issue in Fedora 21, if
I remember correctly), there is no error message printed when the image
generation fails due to being too large. Running V=s shows:

[mktplinkfw] *** error: images are too big
Makefile:2244: recipe for target 'install' failed
make[5]: [install] Error 255 (ignored)

So, the real problem is that for some reason, my system is ignoring the
make error. This is unrelated to your patch. My thinking is that it was
intended behavior, and would make sense to change it in the same patch.
Sorry about the confusion.
