Adding OpenWrt support for Mikrotik CRS518-16XS-2XQ-RM

Hello! I want to get OpenWRT working on the Mikrotik CRS518-16XS-2XQ-RM. I saw in the wiki that RouterOS 7 isn't supported and was curious what the challenges are with routers 7. I do have hardware available for testing. I am trying to get a few of these working in a data center environment. RouterOS7 seems to lack certain BGP knobs and support for BFD. It would be neat if we could get Free Range Routing working on top of OpenWRT. I don't have a very big budget for this project, but I would be willing to pay for help with development. I have limited development experience but am new to OpenWRT. (PS, sorry if this is the wrong category.)
