[OpenWrt-Devel] 4K sectors on ath79-tiny

What is the reason for not enabling 4K erase sectors for the 4M
devices in ath79 target?

jffs2 needs minimum 5 erase blocks so for those space-constrained
devices this option seems to be really useful (to be able to keep
configs when the space gets tight). 

However please note that if this option is enabled then sysupgrade
will fail to properly keep configs on upgrade, that might be a nasty
surprise for those already using the supported boards. So what would
be the way towards enabling this feature now?
