@pmgp can you apply patches on top of trunk and build/test?

As I am understanding the issue - commit "ath79: lzma-loader: allow setting custom kernel magic" did almost everything right, except for setting some vars to empty, which if not done - get wrong values from previous device in tree or something like it.

Commit https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/4143/commits/37b0a1364b9ad7a689aa9210996560a360e3a412 "ath79: set lzma-loader variables to null by default" from this pull request
should fix the above problem, and make trunk work again, at least it did for the CPE210v1 I have.

So if someone is building their own firmware - can you try applying the described changes and test?

I use ready made firmwares too, so I cannot do it..
