GNU Linux-libre

http://linux-libre.fsfla.org
Linux-libre is a free/libre version of the kernel Linux suitable for use with the GNU Operating System.

It removes non-free components from Linux, that are disguised as source code or distributed in separate files. It also disables run-time requests for non-free components, shipped separately or as part of Linux, and documentation pointing to them.

The GNU Linux-libre project takes a minimal-changes approach to cleaning up Linux, making no effort to substitute components that need to be removed with functionally equivalent free/libre ones.
