I was not aware that the WAN LED seems to be controlled by the driver and not by the device-tree or userspace code (as reported by Roger).

If that's also the case for your device, you won't need to enter anything into 01_leds.

How's the WAN LED behaving for you and is it referring to the correct port (or a wrong one as Roger reported for DIR-810L).

If you think it's easy, include it in your patch already. Otherwise, first provide sysupgrade support and then provide factory in a second step.

Obviously, not having a factory image will make writing flashing instructions more complicated.
