   3) Just ship the .bin part together with the rest.

I don't see a problem with it not complying with the DFSG, the
source is available and it's possible to build with with something
else in main, just not on all arches.

As far as I know, we don't have a requirement that everything
needs to be build from source, just that we can do it.
