Beware, this is still based on the old deblobbing scripts, that left
requests for external non-Free firmware in place.

I'll start retrofitting these fixes to 2.6.27-libre as soon as I
complete the fixes for 2.6.28-libre1 and release 2.6.28-libre2 and, as well as 2.6.29-libre.  I expect the last 3 to be out
Real Soon Now (TM); 2.6.27-libre1 will take a bit longer.

I wonder...  If people would be interested in earlier backports of this
stuff, please let me know which version, so that I can prioritize it
accordingly.  Getting back to 2.6.27 and 2.6.26 are going to be kind of
painful, because of all the churn in moving stuff into firmware/, but
once that's done, earlier releases should be a piece of cake.
