Done. Big thanks to you, jihem.

You can add the following patch to make this package compatible with Linux 4.12.
You should also remove the .install file (not necessary with pacman hooks) and remove (or move to optdepends) linux-headers dependency for people who don't use the default kernel.

Done, let dkms autoload the module from now on.

Done, use the dkms module from now on.

Actually I'm thinking in removing the initfiles script since dkms is configured by default to autoload the installed modules (check your /etc/conf.d/dkms). Doesn't dkms autoload frandom in your system?
