Note that as rfkill is now part of util-linux, updated systems cannot have the still-existing-and-soon-to-be-deleted rfkill package installed, and util-linux does not provide a versioned rfkill version suitable to match the version restraint mandated by archboot. Which means this too must be removed in order to make archboot installable again.

I'm surprices this package is not listed on the TODO ever with a in-AUR dep.

Maybe Allan don't check Core for the ToDo...

I'll update archboot soon with i686 cleanup.
Give me some time, i'm aware of it.

The git version has it removed, I have the problem that it doesn't boot atm, something from glibc is missing.
