Honestly I trust chinese/taiwan corporations lesser than Gugl... However if this will benefits some Linux stacks for any reason we will thanks Mr President for his childish commercial war against China...

@Daniel Yeah, in general I'd agree, given that that even though they have what might appear to be privately owned businesses, the government technically owns them all... but the more I actually researched the Huawei claims the more I'm certain that they are pretty legit. I really trust them as much as I'd trust Dell or HP, whom iirc have all have all had cases of installing some sort of malware/phone home bs at some point over the years - and any US company could just as easily have state-sponsored malware installed given the closed-source and downright suspicious nature of the hardware from Intel (and AMD too if I'm not mistaken). I just assume it all has shit-ware on it at the the hardware level and do what I can to mitigate it... but out-of-band stuff is rather tricky to mitigate :\ If you want a machine with something newer than like core-duo you pretty much have to just assume the worst, haha.
