[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH 0/2] ath79: add support for Netgear WNDR4300

This patchset enables ath79 target for Netgear WNDR4300 (version 1).

The goal is to provide full functionality in ath79, on a par with
ar71xx target. For OpenWrt to build and operate correctly on this 
equipment, two prerequisite patches are required:
* "ath79: add AR934x NAND Flash Controller driver" - to access
  internal flash storage
* "image: add magic number option for append-uImage-fakehdr" - to
  produce correct image file accepted by uboot

Patch #1 contains usual files and modifications provided when adding
new device plus changes to makefile system as it is apparently the
first Netgear NAND-based router to be supported in ath79 tree.

Patch #2 for syspugrade is a workaround ported from ar71xx. It may
(or may not) follow sysupgrade design concept for ath79, but such
or similar solution is required for this device - otherwise upgrading
using this command fails and requires TFTP recovery to bring device
back to function.
