What is missing with respect to the ethernet switch (except an userland
interface for configuring the VLANs)? It is running and VLAN
configuration can successfully be changed by editing if_admsw.c. Okay,
that is not really comfortable but it works perfectly on my unit.

NAND flash would be really great especially since there is a lot of
space left. The BR6104K has 2 MB flash and my nfs-image is (gzip'ed)
only 539K small. I guess switching from NFS code to flash would not
really increase that so 1,5 MB should be left. That is much more than
OpenWRT leaves - they have some 400 or 500 KB left and can run a busybox
+ uclibc based userland out of this.
