LEDE for TP-LINK WR845N V1

Is there any chance of this device getting LEDE support.
It has same cpu as TP-LINK WR841ND router, which is supported by LEDE

The following is device information of wr845n V1.

CPU1: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533-BL3A(650 MHz)

RAM1: 32 MiB (Zentel A3S56D40GTP-50L)

WI1 chip1: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533
WI1 802dot11 protocols: bgn
WI1 MIMO config: 2x2:2
WI1 antenna connector: none

ETH chip1: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533
Switch: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533

Since it is pretty simple device and uses QCA9533 that is well-supported LEDE will work on it.
But the fact that it has only 4 MB of flash and 32MB of RAM mean that I doubt it will be accepted into LEDE.

You could probably use serial to transfer and flash the wr841 build. From then on treat it as if it were an 841, upgrades should flash from within LEDE. Or maybe the 941 since it looks like 2x3:2 MIMO.

As far as making a "factory" image that is mostly a matter of setting up headers to what the stock firmware expects, but like robimarko said, I doubt the main developers will spend any time on a 4/32 device.
