Upgrading OpenWRT to LEDE

A bit late, but I wanted to upgrade OpenWRT 15.05 to LEDE 17.01.4.

It worked perfectly for my WDR 4900. The OpenWRT-to-LEDE-rebranding caused no problems.

I basically followed my own upgrade instuctions.
I also took advantage of adding files and folders to /etc/sysupgrade.conf. Those where automatically kept during the upgrade, which is nice.

Conclusion (based on one successful upgrade): if you are an old OpenWRT fan there is no reason to fear LEDE and wait for a new OpenWRT release before upgrading.
