Have you tried it? It didn't work for you?

It works out of the box for me if the ar71xx board name matches the one in ath79 DTS (which isn't the case for example for Nanostation, but I'll send the patch to fix that), otherwise you just need to use force flag in sysupgrade (if you know what you're doing) and it should work.
