thanks for the hints! it looks my beaglebone black compiled and now runs a new kernel. It applied the archlinuxarm patches to linux-libre-3.8.13. Only a few conflicts had to be resolved by hand. Well, the new patches count some 100,000 lines and I didn't read all of them. How can I make sure they dont'n introduce new blobs? What worries me too, there is no "Missing Free firmware" message in the dmesg output.
