The new mkinitcpio 0.6 brings lots of changes, most importantly the removal of
klibc in favor of glibc and busybox. This update should be flawless and
completely invisible to the end user, but if you are paranoid you can still
backup your old initramfs image and regenerate it directly after the update to
be sure. If you use a root filesystem on NFS, you need to install the new
package mkinitcpio-nfs-utils. If you are interested, you can find more details
about the changes on [my blog][1].
