Thank you for that detail, I see that my router does have a serial
number that meets that pattern, I'll update the wiki with this

I could patch it as planned, however as far as I can tell this file
contains a large table of flash chip identifiers. Is there a reason I
wouldn't want to create a new single patch that updates the entire
"static const struct spi_device_id spi_nor_ids[]" table? This would
also consoldiate the table updates out of the following patches.


I could create the new single patch for both trunk and 15.05.1 and
bring these updates into a single place under target/linux/generic.

Please let me know if this makes sense or if I'm better off limiting
the scope as originally described? I'm aware that there are non-table
updates on the other patches, I'll leave those parts alone.
