Just an info for others who reads this,
we discussed the issue on IRC and there are actually 2 issues:
1) during -Syu kbd (which doesn't include keymap hook now) is
installed before kernel,
then mkinitcpio is run during kernel install and it fails because of
no hook available.
2) klibc-kbd is not installed as a new dependency of to-be-upgraded mknitcpio,
it looks to me like some weird pacman bug. :-/

#1 can be solved by changing depends=(... mkinitcpio>=0.5.15 ..) in
kernel26 PKGBUILD to the current mkinitcpio version (which depends on
but if #2 is a real bug - this won't work anyway, so #2 should be investigated.
Tobias, could you please resend that part of pacman.log to pacman-dev
ML or at least to Dan?
