interesting device, especially for the VBUS "solution", so I decided to 
buy for testing.
I assume VBUS is only connected to GPIO.

OpenWRT is currently in (re)merging status from LEDE
maybe LEDE images can work.
I've done a testbuild with current LEDE and ext4 target which fails,
make be a
make -j1 V=s 
or a testbuild for my ALIX6F2 give me some light here.

read only ?
I think this must be read write, must verify this with my ALIX6F2 running 
openWRT on a CF card with ext4 as rootfs.
