Thin client router part3: Bare metal atom

"Bare Metal Atom" is the name of my Skrillex cover band... OK, maybe that joke's not ready for a revival yet.

In this part of my Dell Wyse 3040 thin client hacking series I'm going to bite the bullet and run bare metal OpenWRT on the 3040. In part 1 of the series I showed all the things I needed to do to run any software other than the inbuilt ThinLinux client software. Then I messed-about with a fairly pointless (but personally satisfying) exercise in running a virtual machine of OpenWRT on it in part 2.
