Those are pretty old releases and I didn't check the hard data, but I
guess that may be the time-frame in which Linux-libre went beyond just
removing blobs, to also disabling the requests for blobs distributed
along with or separately from Linux, that induced users to install them.

Since those releases of Freed-ora were already obsolete back then, we
didn't go back and create new binaries out of the further cleaned up
Linux-libre sources.
