Arduino Yun (and bridge.py)

Is LEDE worth it for Arduino Yun?

Particularly about Bridge (AVR/AR9331 communication):

  1. is it included in LEDE out-of-the-box?
  2. would it be improved?

I'm using a lot of Yun and Bridge is the key and is a pain in the a**.

After hours powered-on (10-30) the response time (Mailbox, BridgeClient, BridgeServer) is unusable (from 100's milliseconds it goes to 2-to-5 seconds) and a reboot is required to bring it back to normal (reset-mcu or restarting bridge isn't enough).
