Of course.  These are RC bugs.  I would be happy to upload an NMU that
fixed the RC issue by removing support for the relevant hardware, and
dropping blobs from the source.  I don't think it's a very challenging
task, but I'm happy to do so.  Will that be ok?

Great, so since there won't be any active attempts to stop, I can just
go ahead with the work, right?
