D-Link DNS-327L NAS now mainlined

Achievement

Yep, something like that. Despite huge amounts of rush at work these days I managed to push both patches into mainline linux, so starting from 4.1 and on you can just grab kernel from kernel.org, compile and boot it on the NAS (Yappee!!)

Just make sure you disable cpuidle ‘deep idle’ state. It causes NAS to hang once every few hours and is likely a problem with either hardware or the bootloader (I’m still too lazy to try out mainline u-boot)
