Based on the recently released Linux 5.0 kernel series, the GNU Linux-Libre 5.0 kernel is here to offer you a Linux kernel that doesn't contain any proprietary code as it deblobbs the new ipu3-imgu driver, removes the Eicon DIVA ISDN driver, and updates the names of several firmware included in the upstream Linux 5.0 kernel. Of course, GNU Linux-Libre 5.0 kernel also inherits the new features of Linux kernel 5.0, such as AMDGPU FreeSync support for AMD GPUs, improved power management for devices with ARM big.LITTLE CPUs, Adiantum file system encryption support, swap file support in the Btrfs file system, and support for the binderfs file system to enable running of multiple Android instances.
