Wouldn't it be the easiest to force the name used for the directory in
the sysupgrade.tar to "sysupgrade-mir3g", to be compatible with 18.06
It can be done by adding "BOARD_NAME := mir3g" to the device define in
the 19.07 branch as well as master.
Beginning with 19.07, nand_do_platform_check() isn't used for ramips and
nand_upgrade_tar() doesn't rely on the boardname either any longer.
Instead, nand_upgrade_tar() will grab the kernel and rootfs from the
first found directory matching the pattern "sysupgrade-.*". Means, we
wouldn't introduce another compatibility issue.
Of course, a downgrade from master to 19.07 and earlier would still
require the force argument due to the not matching name in the image
metadata. Considering that we don't adjust the running config to be
compatible with earlier releases during downgrade, I rather see this as
a pro than as con.
