well this case was properly reported and I got simply interested because of
the proposed `sysupgrade -F` "fix" in that bug report.

I've looked at this option first, then seen different NETGEAR_KERNEL_MAGIC and
NETGEAR_HW_ID for those device and I've thought, that fixing it with
SUPPORTED_DEVICES would just make the mess worse.

I think, that we should avoid promoting `sysupgrade -F` as a standard upgrade
procedure for the obvious reasons.
