New Upgrade-Method needed for bigger Images on WRT54G3GV2-VF

Description

For firmware Updates on the LinkSys WRT54G3GV2-VF there is a need for a simpler Upgrade-method. sysupgrade and webinterface not really working with images lager then 4MB. mtd directly in the shell has his issues, too.

For now the only working way is to always disassemble the unit and use a serial console+tftp. The boot-wait TFTP-Process is different in this CFE and only support very small images. Flashing directly from the Original-Firmware to an 8MB OpenWRT-Image instead is possible.

in one step.
