That was useful.  I caught a deblobbing bug in the new btusb driver,
that caused a compiler error and drew attention to the very sort of
stuff we intend to remove.  So, having to decide between removing it and
respinning it, I did the latter.

For someone who already downloaded the original one, I removed tarballs,
patches and binary deltas, but I moved the .sig files and the broken
deblob script to 4.1-rc6-gnu/broken.  The result of the respin is now in
4.1-rc6-gnu, having replaced the broken one.

You can check that you got the fixed one by downloading just the sig
file and checking it against your downloads.

If you haven't, you may want to go for 4.1-rc7-gnu instead.  It is now
available too.
