    However, I'm not convinced it's worth doing.  I mean, if we just disable
    the driver (as in preventing it from being compiled in the first place),
    like we do now (for nearly all such drivers), this change won't make any

I am a bit confused here.  When you find a driver that contains a blob,
you don't just stop it from being compiled, right?  You also remove
the blob.
