The email address v86d (at) github.com you mentioned for bug reports does not work:

Best idea to resolving is not to depend on any uvesafb-package, since v86d might be also wanted to used for other hacking. (In fact, v86d is a helper for uvesafb, not the other way round) or a custom kernel might already have uvesafb compiled in.

And, please take care of proble reports on the AUR-page and not just refer to somewhere else. You can configure the AUR to send you emails, when someone reports something. And you cannot expect of bug-reporters to have an github-account. Do not make hindrances for bug-reporters.

There is a conflict with uvesafb-dkms which (now?) also provides v86d.

So installing v86d will also install uvesafb-dkms which will cause the following error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) v86d: /usr/bin/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/initcpio/install/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/modprobe.d/uvesafb.conf exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Installing uvesafb-dkms "fixes" this problem because then the v86d command is also available.
