I've just looked into ar71xx leds definitions and it seems like d-link has been used there consistently.
So, ignore my comment in this context and keep your current d-link:green...

Concerning adding further devices:
No merge without testing on device. You can try to build a patch and then look for other people testing, either in the forum or as WIP Pull-Request. You can try to check older commits for that device to ask people for help. But without proper testing we won't accept a support patch, no matter whether it's a new device or just migrated from ar71xx. The only exception may be made when there is clear evidence on a 100 % clone of a supported device just with different name.
