Build non-ct ipq806x image with image builder 22.03.5

I had some issues with ath10k-ct (lags and drops), mostly 5G. After reverting back to non-ct by "remove ct-pkgs; install nonct-pkgs; reboot" everything works just fine, no error messages, no hangs, no drops. I build images with imagebuilder, it's enough for me, i just want to include some more packages and some files. I patched the makefiles for profile zyxel_nbg6817:

but make image PROFILE="zyxel_nbg6817" fails:

because ath10k-firmware-qca9984-ct was somehow included in the package list:

Building images for ipq806x - ZyXEL NBG6817
Packages: ath10k-firmware-qca9984-ct ... kmod-ath10k ...

I even replaced ALL occurences of ath10k-firmware-qca9984-ct with ath10k-firmware-qca9984, no luck, ath10k-firmware-qca9984-ct is always included.

I don't understand the build process, it seems to ignore the packages in the profile.

Has anyone an idea how to fix that?

'make info' shows the profile with ath10-ct but I have no clue where it gets the package list and profile changes in in target/linux/ipq806x/image/ are not shown by 'make info'

OK, I got it working, i had to change the package names in .targetinfo as well.
