I think this could be done by means of the client, for example the
client already lists the devices of a user. It does not currently look
for the driver/firmware name but we should add it. (points 1,2,3)

We could use a list of all the drivers/firmware used by the linux-libre
kernel and check if a driver used is inside that list (4,5), the client
should do it

We could think to create an alert (8) if a device is marked as working
while the driver/firmware is not in the list of the drivers/firmware
loaded by linux-libre

I'm certainly not able to discover that list because I do not have any
experience on linux-libre and on a kernel in general :)
