Blacklist files in /etc/modprobe.d/

Hi Álvaro, 

gr-osmosdr doesn't contain any of these drivers nor their blacklist
files themselves – it's but a "shim" to plug these drivers into GNU

So, you'll have to look into libhackrf and librtlsdr, respectively.

Notice that if you've installed these via your linux distro package
manager, then the maintainer of the respective package usually is the
one that defines which files go where.

Best regards,
