Operating System - All
Severity - Low
Priority - Very Low
Reported Version - openwrt-21.02

Due Date - Undecided
Details - At this week i have installed the last version of OpenWRT (21.02.1) at my modded TP-Link MR3020 v1 (8MB SPI Flash, 64MB DDR SDRAM).
I switched USB port to 'device' mode with hardware mod (GPIO13) and turn on kmod modules for gadget mode with 'make menuconfig'. also I slightly corrected the config file 'ar9331_tplink_mr-3020_v1.dts for usb controller mode: 'host'-> 'peripheral'.

Firmware starts normally.
When i prompt command 'insmod g_mass_storage file=/image', host detects the new mass storage device with correct attributes (name, serial, sectors count).

For prevent buffer overload bugs, i check this module with very small image file (64KB).

Log for that stage:
root at OpenWrt:/# insmod g_mass_storage file=backing_file
[  348.897602] Mass Storage Function, version: 2009/09/11

root at OpenWrt:/# [  349.412682] g_mass_storage gadget: high-speed config #1: Linux File-Backed Storage

But if i try to read sectors from that device - it is not succesfull. My host pc freezes for some seconds, and after pause device disconnected from host.
At this moment i see a restart of the OpenWRT with watchdog:

i compiled the previous version (19.07.8 - Atheros AR7xxx/AR9xx -> Devices with small flash -> MR3020v1) - gadget mode (g_mass_storage) works fine at that board.
