Irdest - OpenWRT Image and Bluetooth LE

Add Bluetooth LE connections to Irdest

This project extends the Irdest mesh networking stack in two ways:

Firstly, adding Bluetooth Low Energy support to Irdest. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an important technology to support for the mesh to work seamlessly. BLE supports the same communication range as regular Bluetooth protocol, while substantially reducing the energy footprint. Given that almost all mobile devices support BLE, supporting it in Irdest is a great advantage.

Secondly, creating an OpenWRT image for Irdest. OpenWRT is a Linux distribution for embedded devices like routers. Like any other operating system, it has apps or packages. Irdest could see wider adoption if we publish an Irdest package for easy installation on OpenWRT.
