you mean all versions in master (4.19/4.14/4.9) or really only 4.19 ?

I have a small tool/OpenWrt package
that I'm presenting at DEF CON in a week, and would really love to
have a way to disable this hack,
so I don't have to tell people that want to test it that they have to
rebuild OpenWrt.
So I'm willing to work on any small patch that workaround my issue and
seems reasonable to everyone in a short time-frame ;)

I'll also try to dig some more in the old repo & bug tracker to see if
there is more info than in the patch & email
