The unfortunate consequence of this is that currently Arch only has
5.10 kernels available, and a mkinitcpio that by default only works
But people on Haswell CPUs had to have 5.4 pinned, since any later
kernel was crashing the GPU, so the mkinitcpio change will break their
boot unless they are extra/doubly careful.
