Can we think about doing this soon? There is 234 packages left and 453
have been fixed.

I've lost network on 3 hosts by updating them and have systemd
services which use /usr/sbin/{ethtool,sysctl}. There is also breakage
to fcron users who doesn't take care immediately of .pacnew files.
Instead of starting looking at which package can cause breakage or
not, launching the final rebuild now will save admin time.
