Hi arch community,
The new 2.6.32 kernel series moved to the [core] repository.

Upstream changes:

http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16855 # added CONFIG_PM_DEBUG 
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/17106 # added CONFIG_MMIOTRACE

KMS changes:
- changed intel kms enabled by default
- radeon kms is now disabled by default
  Please use the modeset option to enable it.

  Next mkinitcpio update will fix this regression in the future.
