I was looking at FS#7155 (http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/7155) which I

what appears to be a rewrite of the md5sum checking.
In the bug report, it was asking for more information than "error:
failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)". Trying to
look at this I noticed that the "invalid of corrupted package" part can
only generated by alpm_pkg_checkmd5sum() which is not used anywhere.
The "error: failed to commit transaction" part is generated by
sync_trans() if alpm_trans_commit() fails which in this case can be
followed through to test_md5sum() failing. So it looks like md5sum
checking was overhauled at some stage.
So my question is: Is alpm_pkg_checkmd5sum() a leftover of the past and
