Thank you for this enlightening message about blobgesa... Luckily AMD was
10 years slow at following Intel's ME example, 10 years since ME first
version, and it was not until 2015 that built-in Platform Secure Processors
completely took over the AMD's Mobility family ( Kaveri from 2014 still
didnt have PSP ) . Desktop family has 2015 Godavari without the PSP. It
seems that PSP-blobgesa plague is going from low end to high end direction,
and - while it took over the mobility family - desktop high end is still
OK, and server family is far from it (so far only low end "seattle" servers
are affected)

Hopefully this blobgesa will be open sourced eventually - its not that far
from reality because AMD open sourced a lot of stuff during the past
months... Also it will be very interesting to see how AMD Zen platforms
will behave

Best regards,
Vladimir Shipovalov
