According to that thread, they're targeting kernel 3.13 for built-in
support. Since we're currently on 3.11, you'll have a bit of waiting to
do, it seems. You might (if you're feeling up to it) try asking for the
patches on that thread and compiling the kernel yourself. Makepkg makes
adding patches to a kernel build fairly straightforward, assuming you're
somewhat familiar with the package build process.
