One of my machines requires a patched kernel, but I've never felt the need for a linux-src 
package. I use Yaourt as an ABS client, but there are others available:

# yaourt -G linux
# cd linux
--- do patching ---
# makepkg

The PKGBUILD even contains instructions on how to tweak the configuration, if I 
remember correctly.
