Thanks for pointing to it, test-driving it as we speak. Only commit 02fd26b77a0c59e2f44380aaee8c90c66b0f4f59 needed a minor adjustment in order to apply to present 19.07 HEAD, all other patches applied as-is.

I assume one does not need a 'matching' LuCI for this to work, right? Unless one starts changing wireless settings through LuCI?
