GNU Linux-Libre 5.9 Kernel Is Out for Those Who Seek 100% Freedom for Their PCs

Based on the recently released Linux 5.9 kernel series, the GNU Linux-libre 5.9 kernel is here to deblob any proprietary code and drivers from the upstream Linux kernel to provide the community with a libre, 100% free kernel that they can install on their personal computers. This release includes a new blob name for x86 touchscreen, deblobbing for a new rtw8821c Wi-Fi driver, cleaning for a new SoC support driver for MediaTek mt8183 to disable requests for blobs, and various changes to the AMDGPU, mt7615, Intel i915 (CSR), Mellanox mlxsw (Spectrum3), and r8169 (rtl8125b-2) drivers.
