Because it's a very large chunk of non-upstream code.

At least the patches we had in the past were rather messy.

If you want to do that, that's fine by me. My guess is that getting the

I'd like to defer any attempt at bringing it back into LEDE until it is
reasonably close to being accepted upstream.
