I've tested 5.4 (a3ffeb413b to be precise) with an Asus RT-N56U
(rt3883) lightly, and all appears to be in order.  It is a backup
remote AP with light traffic.  There is nothing unusual in the logs,
and the single client I have there can connect fine.  I imagine this
would be enough to avoid dropping support for rt3883.
