[arch-general] Installing base unattended without specific packages

Hey fellow Arch Users,

I am currently playing around with the GitLab CI and automatic building of Arch 
packages. My modified Arch Linux Docker image should include base and base-
devel, but without all of the kernel and hardware stuff.
This is the command, that does not work as expected:

pacman -Syu --needed --noconfirm --noprogressbar --ignore linux,linux-
firmware base base-devel git

The packages linux and linux-firmware still get installed. I would prefer if there 
would be a way to install base, but without all of the irrelevant stuff for 
containers. I would propose something like base-container for this group.

Kind regards,--
