FS#1963 - Bin image for WRT160n V3 is too big

Device: Linksys WRT160n V3
Current version: lede-17.01 branch (git-18.201.27126-7bf0367) / LEDE Reboot 17.01.6 r3979-2252731af4

The squashfs installer for version 18.0x is 3.9MB but the router can only hold 3.6 MB so flashing a new version fails.

Size comparison:
3.6M lede-17.01.6-brcm47xx-mips74k-linksys-wrt160n-v3-squashfs.bin
3.9M openwrt-18.06.0-brcm47xx-mips74k-linksys-wrt160n-v3-squashfs.bin

This is a 4/32 device. Since nobody cared until now, I will disable automatic build for this device (also for stable branches). It should still be possible to build images when choosing appropriate packages manually, so the image does not become too big.

Consequently, I'm closing this with "Won't fix", as I won't do anything about the root cause.
