Okay yes having CIFS and the extra modules with that for it to function properly does blow out the size of the images.
So this is what I will do. I will have it compiled in for the NAND generic devices and for the TP-LINK TL-WDR3500-3600-4300-4310 and MW4530r-v1
However for all other devices, Samba, and file system support will not be in the base image. What I will do though is offer the ipk files on the server for you to download and install should you desire Samba functionality and have the flash space to support this. Otherwise the image with everything included is too large for several devices.
Changes so far with this build:
* Removed the ath10k driver for all devices except the Archer C7 v2 which needs this for 802.11ac
* Removed Samba and the following filesystem support for all devices except all NAND generic and TP-Link devices listed above. Filesystems are ext4, ntfs, fat32/ms-dos and associated supporting kernel language modules. Should users of affected devices need this support they can download the ipk files from my server
* Except as mentioned above, added CIFS, UTF-8, NTFS-3G packages/support
* TP-LINK Archer C7 v2 now is built separately and is the only device built with ath10k support (for 802.11ac)
* Corrected a configuration regression which meant the block-mount package was no longer compiled, this is required for various filesystems to mount in openwrt.
Sorry if that all seems confusing, but with all the features, many devices now do not have enough flash space
