Wondering a bit about the status here? Did I miss some change request or
is there something else wrong?

This package is required to use the PoE feature of the supported
switches. Releasing 21.02 without it will probably result in frustrated
users looking for a way to use a feature which used to work before they
upgraded to OpenWrt. We can easily make it work by default with the
rtl83xx-poe package and Stijn's patch.

The package works very well, and no one has yet made any alternative
implementation in other languages or whatver, as far as I know.
