I found these had a broken Provides: for kernel-headers, so there's a
risk that this could cause an update of Fedora rawhide to bring in the
non-Free kernel-headers, because libdrm-devel requires a version of
kernel-headers that the mistaken Provides didn't match.

This is fixed in the just-released .2.

A similar situation affects earlier F-[789] builds, but since there
isn't any package AFAIK that requires an unmatched version of
kernel-headers, I don't plan on rebuilding packages just to fix this

If you know of any packages that would bring in kernel-headers rather
than kernel-libre-headers, or kernel-doc rather than kernel-libre-doc,
because of the errors in Provides, I'll proceed to an immediate
build.  Otherwise, I'll include them only in future builds.
