Porting Meraki MR16 to ath79

Hi there,

Today I worked on porting the Meraki MR16 to ath79, and had some general success:

A lot of things still need to be fixed:

I'm not 100% sure how to go forward; I did speak back in January with the person who originally ported the board to OpenWrt (riptidewave93), but I left the conversation idle until today, where I decided to up and do it (and so far it hasn't been too hard).

For moving forward: I get the impression that https://openwrt.org/submitting-patches should have me squash all of my commits into one and then submit a merge request.

I've got a bunch of old MR16's that i used to use in my hme mesh network. last openwrt version was 17.x.
i'd love to tyr your update - are inaries available?

They are currently available for the ar71xx target.

Worst-case scenario, if you are in a situation where they won't boot their current OpenWrt version, just get a PL2302-based USB to Serial cable and reflash them directly:
