For some time now, OverlayFS has been able to do everything I've been using AUFS for. I'll continue maintaining this, but I won't be using it myself and suggest that AUFS users take a look at the latest version of OverlayFS (which can do several branches, too).
If you have any actual reasons to use AUFS because of features OverlayFS doesn't have, such as multiple RW branches in round-robin, please do comment here.

Before marking this out-of-date: please do so only if the build breaks.
The PKGBUILD is dynamically self-updating so that it builds the last version regardless, and a script on my server updates every 6 hours the apparent version on AUR for the convenience of AUR helpers. It will still build the latest version in every case.

sadkisson, Drarrel: this is not my bug. Try to build core/linux and you'll get the same error. So fix your keyring or --skippgpcheck.

@Mutantx
Arch Linux ARM already has the aufs patch set for many of the kernels.

I've installed all dependencies but am encountering when attempting to install:

rsync: change_dir "/armv7h/core/linux" (in abs) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1637) [Receiver=3.1. 1]

I did attempt to add arm7h to PKGBUILD arch.

Any ideas?

This package is just a bootstrap to the linux PKGBUILD from [core], from which I believe that the AUFS patches should never have been removed (or should have been put back, now that it is maintained flawlessly). Since we don't have an alternative in the mainline kernel today (and archiso has become a silly dmraid-based hack).
If only AUFS could have been merged in mainline!
This being said, please consider this as just building linux from ABS. (that's what it actually does)

First, run `makepkg --verifysource` to fetch the ABS sources. Then edit the 'core-linux/PKGBUILD.core' file to configure the kernel to your liking (uncomment `make nconfig` or whatever else suits you). And run `makepkg`.
