That's a nice toy project, although since there are is an existing
bootloader with sources, I would have shifted the priority towards
getting the kernel support merged such that the bootloader can be used
for something. BTW I sent a few devices to Jonathan, not sure if he
ever got those...

I guess you could start splitting the OpenWrt patches into a format
that makes them suitable for being merged upstream and starting with
the MIPS parts. There might be a bunch of checkpatch.pl cleanup work
to do before getting those submitted.
