Has the partition corruption I saw with the RT-AC87U a while ago (when I
tested if it would boot, which it didn't) been sorted out?

I really don't want to risk breaking my device again. I was lucky I was
able to get a build of asuswrt-merlin to go far enough to build
mtd-erase2, actually it's a symlink to the rc utility, (with an
appropriate change) to allow me to fix the problem.

btw, off-topic, I've been able to load the R8000 OpenWrt chk firmware
via Luci a few times now so I don't know what changed but it seems ok
