Built and tested 5.1.5.arch1-1. Released. However, there are differences between this build's config and official kernel build's. I'll review and address those differences in next builds.

@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?

Looks like the systemd macbook-wakeup.service file is not packaged anymore? Sounds like a bug to me. Can someone confirm this? (tested on latest build 4.13.4-1)

Getting a weird freezing issue when playing Youtube through Firefox on the latest update. I'm using a MBP 11,5 any advice?

Well, backlight will work with stock kernel if I use apple_set_os.efi by 0xbb ( But I have to run it on every reboot. I don't reboot that often but it's quite tedious.

For me stock kernel works for almost anything except backlight. Backlight works only for radeon_b10/brightness and only in a off/on way. So 0 means screen is off and any other number means max out backlight. With this patched kernel all works great.

I have mid-2016 macbook pro (idk if it's 11,4 or 11,5 but it has discrette Radeon graphics). So I guess it's a bit early for deprecation :)

@enrique Thanks for the feedback!

Can anyone else confirm on the functionality of 4.12.4? If everything looks fixed I'll deprecate this package.

Yes it looks like 4.12.4-1-ARCH works on my MacBookPro11,4

@m3thodic brigthness keys for keyboard and screen works for me

@jbg What about the brightness keys, do they work out of the box as well?

FYI, as of the 4.12.4-1 release of the standard "linux" package (normal Arch kernel) my Macbook powers off, reboots and suspends without any issue without needing this patched kernel any more.

@rossome Please don't flag this package out-of-date unless it's older than what is being shipped with Arch Linux. I understand says 4.12.1 is out, but this package is updated only when Arch Linux updates their kernel package (especially for major version bumps).
