Perfect.  To avoid modifying files in the Guix tree itself, you could
put this ‘linux-libre-4.3’ in a module of its own that you keep in
$GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH, just for your own uses.

Now, if the regression is serious and widespread, you might want to
start an argument on guix-devel as to whether we should provide this
particular kernel version in Guix proper.
