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.

Question for anyone using this package with a MacBookPro 11,4:
if you have a thunderbird-ethernet dongle plugged in when you suspend, does your computer resume properly? Mine wakes up enough to show me what was on the screen
when I suspended, but it seems to be otherwise completely dead... no reaction to the mouse or the keyboard.

(For that matter, if anyone with any other type of Mac wants to comment, it might be useful information.)

supertuba: rather than installing the packages, I built the kernel by hand
I noticed that the intel-pstate-backport.patch and fix_race_condition_in_packet_set_ring.diff patches are in the mainline kernels for some time now.

Could that be part of your problem?

Maintainers: given that you are targeting this package to 4.11.9, should those patches be sent to the history department?

Is anyone having trouble installing the packages? I'm currently getting the message that linux-macbook package has failed to install, please check .SRCINFO

I'm new to arch and find little guidance when it comes to troubleshooting macbook specific issues.

It appears that you started signing these packages yesterday. Much appreciated!

There is an updated suspend/poweroff patch proposed to upstream.

Also, the .config in this package is missing a few changes in the linux package.

Thanks a lot for these excellent packages. Would you mind signing the binary builds please?

@Tom_B Thanks for the feedback and tips!

For what it's worth, I struggled with Grub like others. I switched to systemd-boot and it's a lot easier.

Add the relevant macbook.conf

title Arch Linux (Macbook kernel)
linux /vmlinuz-linux-macbook
initrd /initramfs-linux-macbook.img
options root=PARTUUID=d2722f04-6165-489e-aba6-edeeb8e38634 rw quiet splash video.use_native_backlight=1 processor.ignore_ppc=1

(change your uuid to your / partition) and upgrading the kernel via yaourt just works without any extra hassle.

Thanks for this kernel, i'm very new to arch and such things make me like it even more. I have couple of issues though, here's the output of them.

And wifi stopped working after i updated kernel. Do you guys have any idea what could be a problem?

update: it was because i was booting from a boot.efi file and the boot.efi doesn't regenerate every time you run grub-mkconfig. So to fix it all i had to do was regenerate the boot.efi file.
