All the kernels in the Trisquel repo have had the FSFLA linux-libre
scripts run against them.  Thus linux-generic is a kind of

linux-libre also happens to be the beginning of the name of the forward
kernel packages built for Trisquel by jxself[1].  However, there's no
real reason I can think of to be running one of those on any of the
libreboot supported devices.
