Hello Mirko,

I am not a member of OpenWrt but this are my hints.

Do not ask if this would be a good improvement.
Just do it and make a traceable pullrequest with the changes.
If the community likes this then it will get merged.

Why not include the toolchain for new archs or changes to existing into 
OpenWrt Upstream?
This has a lot of advantages, which hopefully are all well known.
