gadget3000 [1] filed a deletion request for sony-acpid-git [2]:

This package alongside vaio-control-center-git are both tools that
were used for some Sony laptop specific hardware features. They
required a patched version of the kernel (was the linux-sony AUR
package which I also maintained) but those patches ceased to be
maintained when some of the features were merged into the mainline
kernel. The patches don't work on current kernel versions (3.5.x and
above) and the upstream of both packages haven't been updated (since
2011) to use the new kernel. sony-acpid-git also still uses init.d.
