Linux: Panic with the Openwrt router

Blah, went to upgrade the router.  Thought I knew my password.

But when you upgrade, you lose the web interface, and you have to sign in with ssh to get it working.  Didn't work and I went gonzo.  None of the 'failsafe' mechanisms work.  You can't do a factory reset.  Doom!

Wait a sec, I had to do ssh with -l root    Duh!!!!  Then I could get in... phew.
