/etc/systemd/system/ddcci-backlight.service:

# Placing "ddcci_backlight" into /etc/modules-load.d
# leads to hang on boot with external (HDMI) monitor
# connected to the laptop, so we need to add the module later.

# And ddcci_backlight can't detect monitor during sddm.service startup.

@Chrissss What if you have a linux-lts kernel?

dkms already has an optional dependency on all the kernels in the repository.

I think the linux-headers should be a dependecy. Without them I get the following error, when installing the PKGBUILD:

[...]
(2/3) Install DKMS modules
==> Unable to install module ddcci/0.3.3 for kernel *: Missing kernel headers.
(3/3) Removing old cached pacakges...
[...]

After running pacman -S linux-headers the module gets built and installed successfully.
