If you want to be in sync with the official arch kernel config, use git rebase 
in the PKGBUILD.

I'm not sure if it's a wise idea to have  PKGBUILD that's updating against 
kernel releases but not updating its pkgver variable. It would mean different 
under the hood kernels, and the pkgver variable only reflects the static 
changes you make on top of the kernel. In other words: 
<mypackage>-1.0 /= <mypackage>-1.0 
since it's pulling in the kernel config branch.
