ar71xx: Speed up caldata/eeprom handling
Reading and writing to and from flash storage is slowed down enormously by some functions which use a block size of 1. This patch reworks the extraction scripts to be much faster and efficient by reading and writing in possibly one big block. This is based on the initial commit a69e101 for ipq40xx by Christian Lamparter <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Speed comparison @ TP-Link TL-WDR4300 (just manually) results in a time reduction by three orders of magnitude (99.9 %). > time dd if=/dev/mtd3 of=/lib/firmware/test-slow bs=1 count=4096 skip=4096 4096+0 records in 4096+0 records out real 0m 15.85s user 0m 0.06s sys 0m 13.28s > time dd if=/dev/mtd3 of=/lib/firmware/test-fast bs=4096 count=1 skip=4096 iflag=skip_bytes 1+0 records in 1+0 records out real 0m 0.02s user 0m 0.00s sys 0m 0.02s Signed-off-by: Adrian Schmutzler <email@example.com>
