libinput updated from 1.11.0-1 -> 1.11.1-1 on Arch yesterday and since then running libinput list-devices core dumps. That breaks libinput-gestures (AUR) which is used by quite a few Arch users.

This is an upstream bug which I reported at and you will see there that Peter Hutterer quickly committed a fix to master.

Can the Arch devs please consider applying that fix to Arch, until the next libinput release?
This task depends upon

Please try 1.11.1-2 in testing with upstream fix applied.

Yes, that fixed the issue and everything else works normally as far as I can tell. Thanks.
