Indeed, if OpenWrt does not work for your device then you should look
for alternatives or try to dig into the issue yourself.

Lets see... that is a range of 970 commits, with an estimated average of
2 minutes to review each commit that'd be 1940 minutes worth of work.

Given roughly 3 hours daily spare time (weekends excluded) one can
devote to OpenWrt it'd about 2 weeks worth of development time to track
down this sole bug.

That is quite a lot you expect as a minimum. It also not even clear if
any of these commits can be clearly attributed to your problem at hand.
