[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH] ath79: Add LED migration for several Archer Cxx devices

concerning LED migration:

I have _not_ run-tested this patch, as it's closely similar to what has been done for c7-v5, which has been tested.

I own C25 and both C60, though, so if you insist I can test (but not so soon).

Concerning eth0/eth1 swap:

After https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/2066 , several devices were aligned to the ar71xx order, but also several that were "correct" before are wrong now.
This affects the TP-Link C58, C59, C60, Glint AR150, not sure about C25, and most probably several others I have not encountered.

There was a brief discussion about migration somewhere, but I do not recall how or whether it was resolved. I had a quick look into the code, and didn't find anything for eth migration (but might have overlooked it).

Technically, a migration script only would have to exchange eth0 and eth1 (with an intermediate step), so it shouldn't be too complicated, unless I overlooked something. One could do the same for board.json, although solving it like this leaves a little of a sour taste.

Maybe one should restart this discussion on the list ...

However, please note that I'm only dealing with this topic by accident, as I've found out about the missing LED migration (and with ramips LEDs, as I've destroyed them in the first place ;-) ). I'm mostly using OpenWrt to develop Freifunk firmware based on it, where we completely circumvent OpenWrt migration mechanism. So I'm definitely not an expert with this.
