Notice that ideally, the prune-non-free patch could be included in the
kernel-patch-debian package, and even pre-run in the apply scripts or
something such. I would let the details to our patch-magic experts Jens and
Josh for example.
Now, the kernel-patch-debian has another purpose now, after Josh's fixing. The
package provide each individual patch and description, so it has both a
documentation purpose, and a let's apply some of the patches only usage.
