MIPS-24KC vs MIPS-34KC

Although the target builds use compatible 24kc, the documentation should be made correct.

Q) Does the same issue exist for other devices in TOH ?

You are mixing up OpenWrt's package architecture (mips24k, which is the lower common denominator here) and the hardware architecture (mips34kc).

Like on x86, your CPU might be a i686 (or more likely a core i5 or AMD ryzen), but packages are built for the lowest common denominator -the supported baseline target- like i386 (bad example as you should use amd64/ x86_64 these days, but still the same strategy applies).

(Please use the main ToH, not the obsolete/ readonly OpenWrt wiki).
