ath79: add support for Netgear WNDR3700v4
This patch adds ath79 support for Netgear WNDR3700v4.
Router was previously supported by ar71xx target only.
Note: device requires 'ar934x-nand' driver in kernel.

    - U-boot binary: 256 KiB
    - U-boot environment: 256 KiB
    - ART: 256 KiB
    - POT: 512 KiB
    - Language: 2 MiB
    - Config: 512 KiB
    - Traffic Meter: 3 MiB
    - Firmware: 25 MiB
    - ART Backup: 256 KiB
    - Reserved: 96 MiB
  * Ethernet: 5 x 10/100/1000 (4 x LAN, 1 x WAN) (AR8327)

Note about partitioning: firmware partition offset (0x6c0000) is
hardcoded into vendor's u-boot, so this partition cannot be moved
and resized to include Netgear-specific flash areas (pot, language,
config, traffic_meter) not used by OpenWrt.
