I saw 14/14 fly by now. (And I saw 12/12 of v2, which basically replaces
14/14.) That makes things clear.

Perhaps, if you're going to send a v3, you might move this change into
12/12. At least, I see little reason to add this choice block in two
separate steps in this series.

(Side note: you _might_ be able to drop config DTB_ATH79_NONE entirely
if you also replace
default DTB_ATH79_NONE

with
optional

optional is a little used option for choice blocks. I haven't tested
this, so this suggestion could end up wasting your time. And even then
this all looks like a complicated way to set just DTB_TL_WR1043ND_V1. I
suppose you expect to add things to this choice block in the future.)

Thanks,


Paul Bolle
