The nonguix channel fixes this for you. It packages up the vanilla kernel.
Stays mostly in lockstep with linux-libre versions:

In general the channel packages up non-libre software, but main GNU Guix
project doesn't really advertise it for obvious reasons. It's well known
and the main maintainers of Guix are major contributors to nonguix as well.

FWIW, I've been successfully running GuixOS on non-libre systems for about four
years now. Highly recommended. Granted, I also run the nix-daemon service to
fill in some gaps in packages in the rare instances it's needed.
