Thanks a lot.

Do you want to make (and push) a patch for it? Or should I do that?

If you don't want to build an official package for some reasons
(like having Intel AMT), you could also ping someone to build it.

probably not expecting such buttons in the first place.

Is your PKGBUILD fixing it in prepare() ? or does it still need to be
fixed in a subsequent patch?
