    This patch adds support for TP-Link Archer C6 v2 (EU)
    Hardware specification:
    - SOC: Qualcomm QCA9563 @ 775MHz
    - Flash: GigaDevice GD25Q64CSIG (8MiB)
    - RAM: Zentel A3R1GE40JBF (128 MiB DDR2)
    - Ethernet: Qualcomm QCA8337N: 4x 1Gbps LAN + 1x 1Gbps WAN
    - Wireless:
      - 2.4GHz (bgn) QCA9563 integrated (3x3)
      - 5GHz (ac) Qualcomm QCA9886 (2x2)
    - Button: 1x power, 1x reset, 1x wps
    - LED: 6x LEDs: power, wlan2g, wlan5g, lan, wan, wps
    - UART: There's no UART header on the board
    Flash instructions:
    via the router Web interface.
    Flash instruction using tftp recovery:
    1. Connect the computer to one of the LAN ports of the router
    2. Set the computer IP to
    3. Start a tftp server with the OpenWrt factory image in the
       tftp root directory renamed to ArcherC6v2_tp_recovery.bin.
    4. Connect power cable to router, press and hold the reset
       button and turn the router on
    5. Keep the reset button pressed until the WPS LED lights up
    6. Wait ~150 seconds to complete flashing
    According to the GPL source the non-EU variant has different
    GPIOs assigned to some of the LEDs and buttons. The flash
    layout might be different as well. The wikidevi entry for
    Archer A6/C6 assumes they are identical.
