[arch-dev-public] 3.13 packages in testing

I am now starting to push Linux 3.13 to testing. This has taken a bit,
since i686 refused to boot at all, and the actual cause of the problem
is still a mystery to me. Anyway, I found a semi-permanent workaround.
For more information, please see [1] and the discussion that will
hopefully follow.

I already built lirc, nvidia and nvidia-304xx and tested nvidia on
x86_64, successfully.

The community packages bbswitch, r8168, rt3562sta, tp_smapi,
vhba-module, virtualbox-guest-modules and virtualbox-host-modules still
need a rebuild, I like won't get to it now. The respective maintainers
should update these ASAP.

One major change is coming (and Tom will be happy about it): Keyboard
support is entirely modular, even for AT(PS/2) keyboards. Beware that in
order to have keyboard input during early boot, you need the 'keyboard'
hook in mkinitcpio.conf. In other news, this breaks 'rdinit=/bin/sh'. A
post-install message has been added.
