Are any of you using the affected TP-Link boards or ath79/tiny or
4 MiB devices in general? What features do you actually pack in them?
Do you plan to continue doing so past 19.XX release?

If no users speak up probably it's better to remove all the support
code altogether to avoid wasting maintainers' time on it?
