There are non-free blobs in the grsec patch since 2015[1], Parabola is
currently removing them for our grsec kernel.
You can either use these deblobbed ones or remove the non-free firmware
on your own.[2]

I e-mailed spender about the issue and he provided a python script which
removes *all* firmware. Unfortunately, it also removes free firmware
since the script does not have any sanity checks.[3] It could be useful
to revisit this script and get it working properly to automate blob /
non-free firmware removal.
