Info: As it seems, dattobd is currently not working on Kernel versions >=5.9 (tested on Manajaro with 5.10). Problem during build is caused by make_request_fn:

Thanks codekoala, this is my first time making an AUR package so thanks for the help :P I've changed it accordingly.

Here's my attempt at cleaning things up a bit:

Oh, forgot to mention the use of sudo is unnecessary and a bad idea.

Thanks for packaging this up! I meant to do it as soon as I saw it on reddit, but I didn't have the time. Circling back, I was pleased to find this. I would suggest altering the PKGBUILD in a few ways. It seems to be designed only for the system running makepkg, rather than being an actual package that can be installed on multiple systems. First, you have some "install" calls that install directly to the filesystem rather than the package (unless I've been out of PKGBUILD land for a while)--they're missing a reference to $pkgdir. Also, I suggest not doing the depmod and modprobe inside of the package function. Instead, it would be nice to have an install script that simply mentions what the user should do to gain immediate access to the driver.
