Seems like Petr has joined the circle of the ones being fooled by [1],
there's also one PR [2] pending because o that.

2. https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/3854

Petr, the sysupgrade image has all the necessary packages, and it's the one
being finally flashed on the device. If wireless packages are needed during
installation, then yes, this patch has merit, otherwise I don't see the point.
