Sounds like a plan. Now there is going to be some pain in moving to 18.06 in 
any case, so taking a double dose and suffering the QCA8K/DSA change at the 
same time sounds ok for me.

If would be super if there could be some uci-defaults transition script for 
the QCA8K/DSA bump for preventing unnecessary soft-bricks.
