Would that be a good idea or not?

Romulas,

We're less in need of ideas than volunteers.  There are 5.7 
Linux-Libre kernels already in Guix to support specific ARM 
devices, but the 5.7 kernel configuration hasn't been vetted to 
the same FSDG standards as the 5.4 series from which it diverged. 
This would need to be done for all supported architectures, in 
addition to regular ‘does it boot’ testing.

To get started, you simply copy 
gnu/packages/aux-files/linux-libre/5.4-$ARCH.conf to <kernel 
sources>/.config, then run ‘make oldconfig’.  Then you diff the 
new configuration file against the 5.4, since more will have 
changed than only what you entered interactively.  Then you make 
sure each option makes sense for a generic distribution kernel 
following the FSDG.

I'd close with ‘help wanted’ (and I will!), but this requires 
familiarity with the kernel, the FSDG, and of course Guix.  Still,

Help wanted,

T G-R

I've merged your bug #41795 with the original discussion at 
<https://issues.guix.gnu.org/40190>.  Lots of useful info there; 
read up!  (And scroll.  A lot.)
