To get Toke's patches, you would need to have a custom LEDE image built.

Here is Toke's repository with the patches: https://kau.toke.dk/git/lede/

Cake is a kernel package that would need to be integrated into the 
build.  Images built from a newer git version than LEDE's official 
releases are unable to install kernel modules from the package manager 
due to a kernel version dependency.

If you would like me to build an image for you, just list the packages 
you would like me to integrate.  You can email me directly if you wish.  
I can also add other useful components as well.

I have gotten the nDPI deep packet inspection engine working for LEDE.  
I could include that if you would like.  It works great for easily 
marking applications like Skype, Netflix, and many other applications.

If anyone else would like an image built for them, just let me know.
