[OpenWrt-Devel] [ar71xx] Improving device support for WNR2200

The current OpenWrt trunk does not have working USB support for the
Netgear WNR2200.
(See discussion at https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/15267)

There seem to be two problems:

== 1. ==
Review needed for the gpio patch for working USB.

I understand that there was a previous patch submission, but it does
not seem that it was accepted.
Can someone please give some feedback on the patch?

== 2. ==
Even with the above fix to get USB working, it appears that the USB
system is not
initialized early enough for extroot to function.

A workaround was discovered that involved adding a preinit script in
base-files to
modprobe ath9k, however this is not a very good (or permanent)
solution. Thoughts/suggestions?

== 3. ==
Images can't be flashed from luci.
The web interface gives an error when trying to upload an image
(although they flash fine over tftp).
