I can say that Ansuel Smith and I have been working on the IPQ807x support.
It's still rough when it comes to networking but I have been trying to
upstream other stuff slowly.
We were planning to make a PR adding support for most stuff soon and
it would be 5.10 only or
even better 5.15 if that lands into OpenWrt soon.
