ipq40xx: add support for AVM FRITZ!Repeater 1200
SoC:   Qualcomm IPQ4019
RAM:   256M DDR3
WiFi:  2T2R IPQ4019 bgn
       2T2R IPQ4019 a/n/ac
ETH:   Atheros AR8033 RGMII PHY
BTN:   1x Connect (WPS)
LED:   Power (green/red/yellow)


1. Grab the uboot for the Device from the 'u-boot-fritz1200'
   subdirectory. Place it in the same directory as the 'eva_ramboot.py'
   script. It is located in the 'scripts/flashing' subdirectory of the
   OpenWRT tree.

2. Assign yourself the IP address Connect your
   Computer to one of the boxes LAN ports.

3. Connect Power to the Box. As soon as the LAN port of your computer
   shows link, load the U-Boot to the box using following command.

   > ./eva_ramboot.py --offset 0x85000000 uboot-fritz1200.bin

4. The U-Boot will now start. Now assign yourself the IP address Copy the OpenWRT initramfs (!) image to a TFTP
   server root directory and rename it to 'FRITZ1200.bin'.

5. The Box will now boot OpenWRT from RAM. This can take up to two

6. Copy the U-Boot and the OpenWRT sysupgrade (!) image to the Box using
   scp. SSH into the Box and first write the Bootloader to both previous
   kernel partitions.

   > mtd write /path/to/uboot-fritz1200.bin uboot0
   > mtd write /path/to/uboot-fritz1200.bin uboot1

7. Remove the AVM filesystem partitions to make room for our kernel +
   rootfs + overlayfs.

   > ubirmvol /dev/ubi0 --name=avm_filesys_0
   > ubirmvol /dev/ubi0 --name=avm_filesys_1

8. Flash OpenWRT peristently using sysupgrade.

   > sysupgrade -n /path/to/openwrt-sysupgrade.bin
