Addendum! In update_pkgver() we run `check_pkgver "$newpkgver"` but we
do not ever re-lint thea (old) pkgrel. Your current patch means we never
lint it at all, if pkgver() exists.

If we're going to delay this, then we still need to lint the old value
to cover the case where update_pkgver() does not end up modifying the
PKGBUILD and therefore the pkgrel does not change.
