At least for the NAND based devices with a 2 MB kernel partition: - Netgear Nighthawk X4 D7800 - Netgear Nighthawk X4 R7500 - Netgear Nighthawk X4 R7500v2 - Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800 SPI-NOR based devices should migrate transparently: - TP-Link Archer C2600 - TP-Link Archer VR2600v Not affected: - Compex WPQ864 (merged ubi on NAND) - Linksys EA8500 (kernel partition 3 MB on NAND) - Qualcomm IPQ8064/DB149 (merged firmware partition, SPI-NOR) - ZyXEL NBG6817 (kernel partition 4 MB on eMMC/ GPT partitions) Unknown, probably not affected: - Qualcomm IPQ8064/AP148 (NAND, partitioning derived from qcom-smem) The Netgear/ NAND devices will need installing the differently partitioned image via tftp, therefore it might make sense to migrate ipq806x to qca8k/ dsa around the same time, given that the existing configs can't be kept over the upgrade anyways. https://github.com/dissent1/openwrt/commit/5c17ab1f8673d6fb69163052ac7e3f71bf385405 Devices successfully tested with this patch/ kernel 4.14: - Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800 tftp 'recovery' needed to apply the new partitioning, patches for DTS and image code needed tested by: Michael Yartys <michael.yar...@protonmail.com> Message-ID: <mailman.7267.1525467398.2282.lede-...@lists.infradead.org> - TP-Link Archer C2600 smooth transition, patches for DTS and tplink-safeloader needed tested by: Joris de Vries <j.s.de.vr...@gmail.com> Message-Id: <e30ace8a-b750-4df7-b42d-e9447425b...@gmail.com> - ZyXEL NBG6817 smooth sysupgrade, no patches or other changes needed tested by: Stefan Lippers-Hollmann <s....@gmx.de> Message-ID: <20180504214003.61bbd2be@mir> I've been running my nbg6817 successfully on kernel 4.14 for a bit over two weeks now, no issues at all. It is still possible to drop the kernel size to 2'097'152 byte by - https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/staging/nbd.git;a=commitdiff;h=9e6c25f6940dbb294a7ba8cf8c72b659ec444ebf - CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING=y - CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=y But that's exactly on the limit for 2 MB, so it will overflow sooner than later, probably at the most inconvenient time. While [PATCH] ipq806x: cleanup kernel config Message-Id: <1526561729-32032-1-git-send-email-rjan...@codeaurora.org> should extend the headroom a bit more, extending the size of the kernel partition for the affected Netgear devices will be needed in the future either way, probably with the next minor kernel bump at the latest.
