Basically, the patches in this AUR package should be in the Arch upsteam: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51272. There are no downsides to this patch, and it will provide better support for aircrack out of the box.

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  These patches are not in the official kernel sources. There is a reason for that. Unless they are merged into Linux, we won't add them.
