The readline 7 upgrade breaks cinnamon. Cinnamon is linked against libreadline 6 and fails to start after upgrading to the new version due to missing libraries.

$ ldd /usr/bin/cinnamon | grep readline => /usr/lib/

Additional info:
* cinnamon 3.2.1-4
* readline 7.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Install readline 7
* Start cinnamon

Looks like it was upgraded to 3.2 after the readline rebuilt, but was never then rebuilt for readline. The current version in Community works, but is older than the previous version so pacman ignores it.
