Kernel Is Not Being Appropriately Deblobbed

Version:9.0

Beschreibung

The helper for the kernel runs the Linux-libre deblob scripts with --force. This is causing deblob failures to go unnoticed because if the script encounters a problem with deblobbing it goes undetected because the script doesn't error out. This results in Trisquel shipping kernels that are not fully deblobbed. Please remove the use of --force from the helper. Further, there is no usage of deblob-check afterward to ensure a complete deblob happens. Please start running deblob-check on the deblobbed source code. If you're not checking, how can you be sure that the deblob was successful?

An example is here along with my comments (jxself):
