Hello Hannu,

My patch changes the way it is defined in OpenWrt - 'wndr3700v2' is a
sort of naming artifact, all other routers in ath79 target use dash for
version separation - even Netgear ones like WNR612v2, WNDR4300v2 and so
on. And yes, it 'breaks' smooth downgrade path to ar71xx, but please be
aware that when changing branches it is always better to begin with
clean/default device configuration.
