Hi Matti.

I built openwrt with uqmi built into the squashfs with your patch
applied and for some reason the qmi.sh does not get execute bit when

root at OpenWrt:~# ls -l /lib/netifd/proto/
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          2430 Sep  16 20:30 3g.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          2165 Sep  16 20:30 dhcp.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          3508 Sep  16 20:30 dhcpv6.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          3393 Sep  16 20:30 openconnect.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          6945 Sep  16 20:30 ppp.sh
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          6557 Sep  16 20:30 qmi.sh
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          3325 Sep  16 20:30 wwan.sh

Apparently the protocol won't then load properly. Any idea why this
is? Applying chmod +x to the file makes the protocol work.

The other thing I was wondering is the tests for the new boolean
variables with -z. E.g if there now is an explicit config directive to
set dhcp off ("option dhcp 0") then dhcp would still be enabled.

I think the recommended design is to use something along the lines of:
if [ "${boolean_variable:-0}" -gt 0 ]; then whatever; fi
It looks like this should maybe apply to both dhcp and ipv6 variables?
