[pacman-dev] [PATCH] Create split package dirs first

When creating split packages I always wished one could just do make
install in one of the package functions and then directly move the
files belonging to other packages off to their respective pkgdirs.
If you look at the PKGBUILD for systemd this is basically what it's
doing except for one thing: the pkgdirs aren't created before calling
the package functions. To work around this it creates it's own
temporary _$pkgdir directories, moves the files to there and then from
there to their proper destination in the later package functions.

The following small patch fixes this.
