I was't aware of that rule. I thought this project was engaged with
the spirit of hacking (software or hardware). Furthermore, one of
features which leaded Openwrt success was the hardware modding.
Without hardware modding a lot of devices couldn't be supported. This
fact has no discussion for me.
Appart from that, this is the only one device in the bcm63xx target
with Redboot support. Without the image generation it will be
difficult to test otherwise. Therefore the support should be also
dropped for this kernel subtarget if no one cares about testing the
snapshot images appart from me. This is a bit sad, but would make more
Of course I can build my own images. But I don't make tests or fix
issues on this device only for myself but also for others. So, with no
image generation I will probably stop testing snapshots on this
device. As a result of this, I won't either detect and fix other
issues on this target as I made in the past.

Not sure about what's wrong with this naming logic. I made it the most
concise and less disruptive I could.
