I meant sending new patch, but after reading recent emails I believe it 
's in the works already :)

Actually, I meant building and testing on ar71xx target instead of 
ath79. But anyway, you might include this little change in your patch,
because when I added this support, XW wasn't ported to ath79 yet. 
Therefore the LED configuration didn't need any alterations, as on ath79 
it doesn't specify PWM support. My 1st patch drops it also from ar71xx, 
which seems likely to stay for 19.01 release.

If you'd like, I can build the ar71xx image for you, or you can just 
checkout my branch from github directly.  I'll rebase it against current
