[arch-projects] [mkinitcpio] [PATCH] sd-vconsole: Reenable systemd-vconsole-setup.service

systemd v232 dropped the Wants and nothing activates the service
anymore. The binary is still activated via udev, but that doesn't seem
to get triggered properly, possibly because the i915 module is loaded
via modules-load or it replaces the uefi fb.

BTW, without any means of activation, the service unit as shipped by
upstream is useless. We'll see whether they remove it completely.
