I've just published 4.6-rc6-gnu, with deblobbing changes needed for the
4.6 cycle.

I also put in a tweak for the radeon driver to work on a few old cards
even without blobs; back in the old days, this used to work, but
upstream broke it and refuses to fix it.

For now, this only works on cards that use the r600.c implementation; if
your doesn't work, but it used to in very old versions of Linux or GNU
Linux-libre, please get in touch, so that we can try and extend the fix
for your card to.

Aside from that, please give the rc a spin and report any problems back.
