arch linux module packages incompatible with linux-libre
wireguard-arch and wireguard-lts are two packages currently available on the community repo that pack the wireguard module built for Arch's current and lts kernels. These packages do not work with Parabola's linux-libre kernel (the kernel versions are usually different, and the modules must be placed in different directories).
These two packages should be removed and later replaced by packages built for linux-libre and linux-libre-lts. Meanwhile we can still use the wireguard-dkms package.

- Priority changed from bug to freedom issue
- Status changed from open to confirmed
- Subject changed from [wireguard-arch] and [wireguard-lts] need replacement with modules built for linux-libre to arch linux module packages incompatible with linux-libre
- Tracker changed from Bug to Freedom issue
there are other packages which depend on 'linux' - i made an initial list from an arch box - some of them may be on the blacklist, have libre replacements, or can work as-is with linux-libre - those have not been filtered from these lists
