While it is relatively trivial to compile your own kernel with those options enabled using Arch's build system, I think you'd better talk to the actual people that made the change upstream.
This change might have slipped through unnoticed. It seems idiotic: _Add_ code to the kernel, to break users systems, with no benefit whatsoever. It's clearly against Linus' agenda to not break userland. But to tell the users to discuss this upstream is bad advice. This is a situation where a distribution should take corrective action by reverting this configuration. This would add value and remove some useless code from the kernel.
Might worth reaching out to email@example.com mailing list instead of Archlinux as this is upstream default behaviour.
