OpenWrt itself does not support incremental upgrades of the system via
opkg, so we're not going to re-enable md5 support by default again.

Can't you simply update your package lists to include both md5sum and
sha256, making this patch unnecessary?
If not, you could submit a patch that makes md5 support optional (and
disabled by default).
