Apparently I was working on outdated information (likely from the early 
days of ath79).  Likely I got it from the ML archive or an older forum 
post.  Sorry about the noise (and happy it is supposed to just work!).

I will test the ar71xx->ath79 sysupgrade on the (few) models we have in 
our lab, if any doesn't work on that particular model, I will try to 
cook a patch.
