OK with me to remove.

The headers were from 4.14.67 (and still are), though.  So we'll have
headers which we don't have a Linux kernel for.  (Since those change
very rarely, that's not such a big deal)

It doesn't.  I think I messed up the commit *message*, but there is a
definition of linux-libre still (as before).  That commit is very benign.
