Ahh, I was having trouble figuring out how you got an old version. I must have forgotten to push it to aur3 before. :)

Oh, I see. I used cower to download this package, and missed that it downloaded from old AUR, where there's no such crc64.patch. Thanks.

Uh, I'm using it on my desktop, and it builds in the VM I have at work as well using GCC 5.1.0 (fully updated system).

The only patch required was that crc64 one. I've already discussed it on the bug report upstream. It's fixed in git, and I ported the Debian patch in to this package a few weeks ago (crc64.patch).

Make sure you're using the latest version of this package please. (also out of date is for out of date, not problems with package)

This package, doesn't compile in current Arch.
I think this patch solves the problem:

That should be all that you need. It will store which device the cache is attached to, and the udev rule in this package will attach them.

Did you add the bcache hook and module to mkinitcpio.conf?

I feel really stupid, but I seem unable to get my drives cache drives to automatically attach to my backer drives on boot, am I missing something here? I have to do it manually on every boot (`echo 'CACHE-ID' > /sys/block/sdd/ssd5/bcache/attach`).

That sounds like something you should probably post to g2p's bcache-tools page as an issue or a merge request. Or failing that as an extra note on the archwiki about it as an extra way to view bcache stats.

Please consider adding the bcache-status script from github (https://gist.github.com/djwong/6343451)
