This issue is still open as of yesterday's master/ r13611-3f27a6e640,
tested on both tl-wdr3600 and tl-wdr4300 with kernel v5.4.48. The device
bootloops very early and in close succession, requiring tftp recovery[0].

[0]	early hardware revisions before h/w rev. 1.5 didn't ship with
	push-button tftp recovery enabled (this was only added in the
	last few OEM firmware updates for these devices), if the user
	never updated to a more recent OEM firmware containing an
	updated OEM u-boot (not all OEM updates contain the bootloader
	update), they'll end up with a brick requiring serial access.
