Please notice that this patch is WiP and some additional changes are
to be introduced in v2.

I would expect -factory.bin to be flashable by vendor
firmware. Closely looking at hexdump -C doesn't reveal any differences
between generated images by existing support in ar71xx target and this
ath79 port. Upgrading from OpenWrt is possible with sysupgrade. TFTP
to uboot doesn't work for me (I receive ARP request and send replies
back but they're apparently never heard) but with "loady" I'm able to
bootm an initramfs image and then sysupgrade from it.

I see there's some http server mentioned in the wiki article, haven't
tried it yet (and I can't understand what "simple" web browser it
talks about, probably there should be a curl command instead?), and
in my opinion it's ok to wait for a few minutes for slow serial upload
as it's to be performed only once anyway but if you can figure a
reliable http method it would be a nice alternative.

Where would you like to have the additional installation instructions,
on the wiki or in the commit message itself?

BTW, as a device user, what's your opinion regarding mac and lp
partitions, do you consider keeping them wasteful or not?

Thank you!
