@Aeolus Yang / QCA, any new infos how these BDFs or similar ones can be 
integrated in the official [1] QCA40XX board-2.bin? OpenMesh received a board 
which required modified BDFs for bmi-board-id=16 and bmi-board-id=17. This BDF 
was generated by QCA and the ODM and of course conflicts with the
bmi-board-id=16/17 file in the official QCA40XX board-2.bin. The variant 
string method [2,3] is currently the only way to have all these conflicting 
files in the same board-2.bin.

Having the RT-AC58U already integrated in the official board-2.bin would be 
good example and would reduce the barrier for other vendors (with the same
problem) a lot. For example OpenMesh could then use the same approach to get
their BDFs integrated. 

Kind regards,
