RISC-V implementations filled with blobs

Intel, ARM, and especially POWER will be loving this moment:

All this said, note that the HiFive is no more open, today, than your average ARM SOC; and it is much less open than, e.g., Power. I realize there was a lot of hope in the early days that RISC-V implied “openness” but as we can see that is not so. There’s blobs in HiFive.
