Yeah, I wasn’t sure.  Do you have specific issues in mind that you think
should be addressed?

Anyway for the post, Efraim could perhaps write:

  (define make-linux-libre
    ;; XXX: Access the internal ‘make-linux-libre’ procedure, which is
    ;; private until its interface has stabilized.  Stay tuned!
    (@@ (gnu packages linux) make-linux-libre))
