Thank you for your suggestion.

Switching from Linux-libre to Linux with Guix would be a last resort for
me.  The deblobbed Linux-libre kernel was one of the key features that
attracted me to Guix.

I would be more inclined to try to make one of these work first:
- Gentoo with a deblobbed kernel
- OpenBSD (has no binary blobs)
- Devuan testing (I think they have a deblobbed kernel)

However I still want to make Guix with Linux-libre work as Guix has
other features that I like that Gentoo, OpenBSD and Devuan do not have.
