Unfortunately OpenWrt never accepts device support requiring hardware
modifications.
I think part of the reason is that there are too many possible
variants when it comes to hardware modifications and all those
variants will make users confused.

Some maintainers talked about this problem in a past thread but I
can't find it now.
