Voxel's Custom Firmware for NETGEAR R7800v1 (2017-04-02)

These custom firmwares are based on official stock firmware versions for NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S R7800 router. The goal of modification is to extend the functionality of these routers and to use full power of CPU and FPU of IPQ806x processor, limited in official firmware.

---

Changes (vs 1.0.2.29SF):
1. Bridge mode is working now (bug in stock GPL source codes (git_home/qca-hostap.git).
2. OpenVPN is upgraded 2.4.0->2.4.1.
3. ethtool is upgraded 4.8->4.10.
4. Synchronization of other binaries with the stock firmware to avoid “bridge mode” bug.
5. OpenVPN init script is changed to avoid problems with some clients.
6. Some internal optimization.
