Here's a patch that syncs with upstream and updates to 4.14.12.

My bad... for anyone else reading this who doesn't know, the PKGBUILD file shows which of the patches were used, and in what order.

There are 3 patches dealing with suspend and poweroff. Can anyone clarify which ones were actually applied to the kernel source to do The Right Thing?

@m3thodic Ever since the update past 4.13.7-1 my virtualbox module will not load, this issue does not happen on the main linux kernel. Any advice?

Oct 21 13:39:43 hotty kernel: bcm5974: bad trackpad package, length: 8

I fix it by rmmod/modprobe.

There is a script/bug report here

With stock kernel v4.13.5 backlight now works out of the box for me (mpb pro mid-2015). With the help of gmux_backlight of course.

@m3thodic Freeze happened again today, tried to SSH in to no avail.

I also thought it might be CPU/memory related, but both were under 10% when the freeze happened. I don't know whether this will help or not but I've also put up my dmesg on pastebin:

@m3thodic Absolutely. I've been trying to get the freeze to happen today, but can't seem to reproduce it now. I did an -Syu last night maybe one of the updated packages fixed the issue?

Anyway if I can get the issue to happen again today I'll try SSHing into it.

@Jack12816 Good looking out, I overlooked it porting the package to the 4.13 release. I'm gonna have a 4.13.5 build out in about an hour, probably less.

@JeremyTiki So many variables at play here, I wouldn't know where to start. Can you confirm it's a hard freeze by trying to switch to a virtual terminal or logging in over SSH?
