In I have an .install file for each split package. offload-fails does not copy sdrangel-sse4.1.install, making the build fail.

From the documentation:
> install
> Specifies a special install script that is to be included in the package. This file should reside in the same directory as the PKGBUILD and will be copied into the package by makepkg. It does not need to be included in the source array (e.g., install=$pkgname.install).

There's nothing here that would prevent me to have a sdrangel-sse4.1.install file so it should be legal to do it. Did I miss anything?
This task depends upon

makepkg --source doesn't add it, because extracting variables from a split package() function is hard. This actually works in the special case of makepkg --printsrcinfo, but not makepkg --source, due to quirks in implementation. I'll submit a patch to makepkg which fixes this.
