Hi John,

most of the stuff we need in backports is now already in the upstream git:

Johannes is still waiting for a fix iwlwifi then I will make an
officially tagged backports release of that. I would prefer to use that
in OpenWrt as a base for now. Can we wait with the mac80211 update in
OpenWrt some days. It still makes sense to test the stuff which is your
staging git tree, it should work with kernel 4.9 and 4.14, it still has
a problem with kernel 4.19 which is also fixed upstream backports.
