Covers the topic of why open-source hardware is not enough to build
TLDR: there are ways to subvert silicon that cannot be detected, even
with a electron-microscope, even if you know where to look.
One way out are FPGAs wherein you place processor cores randomly, so
attackers cannot know what to subvert at the time of fabrication.
However, this is orthogonal to reproducible+bootstrappable builds.
Ideally you have all of them, but having some of them, is better than
