Including Qi in OpenWrt trunk

Hi all,

We exchanged some emails with Wolfgang and it seemed appropriate to give a 
couple of hints on how to minimize the OpenWrt integration effort. Since 
Qi-hardware is likely to be shipped with OpenWrt (correct me if I am wrong) 
it makes sense to have the hardware target supported by OpenWrt directly and 
add maintain the user-space software separately as a start offloading you 
from the build environment.

The repository available at is cloning a git tree 
containing the OpenWrt trunk Subversion. We try to follow as close as 
possible the stable kernel releases, but everytime a kernel version is no 
longer in use by a target in OpenWrt we remove support for it (like it 
happened recently for 2.6.29), breaking other projects using that particular 

In order to avoid such problems, I would recommend following as close as 
possible the kernel version related changesets in the OpenWrt trunk to know 
when it can break and update to the latest available kernel version as soon 
as possible.

That way, you can still maintain the required kernel version and associated 
files to get your previous kernel version built, as well as testing the new 
stable kernel.
Best regards, Florian Fainelli
