[OpenWrt-Devel] FCC regulatory compliance

As you know, the FCC is enforcing rules around securing regulatory and DFS
behavior and that is affecting how manufacturers respond to end-user
re-flashing. We're aware of some suggestions that have been proposed[1], but
some of those inherently would block re-flashing. We'd like to open discussion
on what could be done on the chip/wi-fi firmware side that would maximize the
opportunity to re-flash a router with the latest OpenWRT/LEDE while still
ensuring compliance with the rules. This would most likely be for new products
rather than the installed base.
