FS#1396 - tp-link 740 / 741 flash

I flashed tp-link 740 version 4 (non removable antenna) with openwrt-ar71xx-tiny-tl-wr740n-v4-squashfs-factory.bin.
So fine everything went well but after flashing we see on web version:
TP-LINK TL-WR741ND v4 ! It should be TP-Link TL-WR740N/ND v4.
This was working before correct. Someone broke something.
Now it is impossible to flash from web again with openwrt-ar71xx-tiny-tl-wr740n-v4-squashfs-factory.bin. It says its incompatible.
Tested on: OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r6325-e9b58b22c1 / LuCI Master (git-18.051.28524-09ea6db)
Bug is very bad.

Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  

This is based on the device setup concept of ar71xx and won't be touched anymore.

This is based on the setup of devices in ar71xx. The image for 740 is just a clone of the one for 741 ...
This is solved differently in newer ath79. For ar71xx, we won't touch that setup.

The second problem with upgrading might be caused by using a factory image for sysupgrade.
