FS#2718 - /overlay is empty and nothing can be written there

Supply the following if possible:
- Device problem occurs on

Only on TPLink Archer C7 v5 (current model).
Other models are OK: A7 (”V5”) (also current), C7 V2, C7 V4 (both earlier)

- Software versions of OpenWrt/LEDE release, packages, etc.

Only Trunk has this problem, and only on C7 v5. rc19.07 does *not* have this problem.

- Steps to reproduce

make menuconfig for target C7 V5
load squashfs-factory version in a C7 V5

...and presto, there’s nothing in /overlay. /rom/overlay is populated. I have found no way to write anything on /overlay. Luci can’t save anything either – not even a password.

There’s nothing weird in my make menuconfig config, unless you count python3-light, bind-dig, ca-certificates, etc. as weird. And the other C7 and C7-like models work fine.
