In the last days i have experienced some problems with kernel26-bfs and relative nvidia drivers. I don't think it's packagers' fault. But the only way I used to make the kernel package work it out is to use the PKGBUILD from the arch repository adapted to my needs.PKGBUILD for splitted packages is the main difference. I guess that could reduce maintainers' workload. I read we can't use this way to make packages, but why?
Simply because AUR can't handle split packages. See and vote here: http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16394?project=2
But in the meantime it's not that hard to revert the kernel26 split package to a single package.
