With the introduction of alpm hooks and the dkms package shipping its own set of install/update hooks, this package should be obsolete in most cases (if not all).

Unfortunately there is no way to do this in pacman directly. The easiest and cleanest way I found to do it is using a shell function for system upgrade. This is what I currently use

During system upgrade the kernel is upgraded before the headers, so when this hook is started it can no compile. Is there any way to install headers before kernel?

Position doesn't matter here, because the hooks only runs on imagebuild but not runtime. I personally favour to add at the end.
