It's based on a MediaTek MT7623N SoC, I don't know where you got
information about it being supported in 4.11 as I don't see any dts
files except the eval board for the SoC.
I looked at the information again. It is R1 support, not R2. Bad
reading on my part.

Buy something else, I don't think we'll support it any time soon,
certainly not in F-26.
Anything else out there with a multLAN? Other than the R1 which I hear
has weak performance.

Device trees start with the SoC manufacturer so not B in this case.

No idea, I've not seen any sort of MediaTek support in upstream u-boot.
And though I am subscribed to the uboot list, I see you active on it, so
you would know...
