ar71x: add support for Mikrotik Routerboard wAP R
This commit adds support for the Mikrotik wAP R (RBwAPR-2nD). The change is based on 3b15eb0 which added support for the wAP 2nD. This change lacks LED support. Specifications: - SoC: Qualcomm QCA9531 (650 MHz) - RAM: 64 MB - Storage: 16 MB NOR SPI flash - Wireless: built-in QCA9531, 802.11b/g/n 2x2:2 - Ethernet: 1x100Mbps - Power: 9-30V Passive PoE, 9-30V DC jack, 9-30V automotive jack - SIM card slot - Mini-PCIe slot Installation: 1. Login to the Mikrotik WebUI to backup your licence key 2. Change the following settings in System->Routerboard->Settings: - Boot device: try ethernet once then NAND - Boot protocol: DHCP - Force Backup Booter: checked 3. Setup a DHCP/BOOTP server with: - DHCP-Option 66 (TFTP server name) pointing to a local TFTP server within the same subnet of the DHCP range - DHCP-Option 67 (Bootfile-Name) matching the initramfs filename of the to be booted image, e.g. openwrt-ar71xx-mikrotik-vmlinux-initramfs.elf 4. Power off the device 5. If this is the second attempt to boot OpenWRT or the boot device isn't "try ethernet once then NAND," press and hold the reset button while powered off. If this is the first attempt, this step isn't necessary. 6. Power on the device, holding the reset button for 15-20s if already pressed from the previous step. The board should load and start the initramfs image from the TFTP server. Login as root/without password to the started OpenWRT via SSH listing on IPv4 address 192.168.1.1. Use sysupgrade to install OpenWRT. Revert to RouterOS Use the "rbcfg" package on in OpenWRT: - rbcfg set boot_protocol bootp - rbcfg set boot_device ethnand - rbcfg apply Open Netinstall and reboot routerboard. Now Netinstall sees RouterBOARD and you can install RouterOS. If NetInstall gets stuck on Sending offer just wait for it to timeout and then close and open Netinstall again. Click on install again. In order for RouterOS to function properly, you need to restore license for the device. You can do that by including license in NetInstall.
