Attached is a partial patch to modify gen-kernel.
It should fix the following bugs:
- DeltaH - Kernel - non free licence /include/video/mach64
- b43 kernel module suggests installation of proprietary firmware
The code to modify the b43 related bug is commented out. I got help
writing the sed line, and I have NFI what it does. I'm not putting it
in without understanding.
If those two things can be fixed, the only other blocker for the next
release is 248 (amslatex), which we are discussing in another thread.
And because it looks like I missed the point of the email:
Could someone else test it? For me it Doesn't Work. 
Else if someone knows how to fix it/work around checkmodule, that would
be wonderful too.
(I'm confused because I can't see any other work done for removing
modules in the deblob script past what I did here, but my removal
fails, and deblobs doesn't).
