Hardly a "major upgrade" from 5.5.8-5 to 5.5.8-6, and this is bad practice- you would have to do this anyway as soon as 5.5.9 comes out for those who skipped 5.5.8. Never ever assume everyone gets every update (and always assume everyone gets every update, which is why I'm seeing this message again).

Additional info:
Use vercmp to fix. See the pacman.install file, kernel26.install, etc.

P.S. sorry for picking on your package and filing these small bugs. :) You don't need to re-release for these though unless you are rebuilding for something else or moving it to [extra], more than likely.
