@habbbe @nakki87 @dlandau
I can confirm that edit works for me on a 4.8.4 kernel.
Made it into a patch: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/bacondropped/fdb1e71228dd4b100a8e9304f95d465a/raw/6f26b3dc3d436a436b415b71fc77a2bb670b74f5/nvidia-bl-0.17.3-linux4.8fix-3bea3c4.patch

@nakki87
It seems the problem is that the macro DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE is no longer available since the last kernel update.
The offending line is 212 in nvidia_bl.c:
static DEFINE_PCI_DEVICE_TABLE(nvidia_bl_device_table) = {

If you replace this with (as described here https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/6813061/):
static const struct pci_device_id nvidia_bl_device_table[] = {


it compiled for me (and worked).

Hi, right now this package can't be built on my machine using makepkg/pacman 5.0.0. The error message states:
`==> ERROR: backup should be an array`

After some research it seems to me like pacman 5 requires this variable to be an array. Wrapping the backupd dir into an array does solve that issue but I do not know whether there are other parts of the PKGBUILD which should be migrated for pacman 5.

Builds and works as advertised. Thank you, dlandau!

Hi, I have issues with this package and makepkg (pacman) 4.2.0 (makepkg returns errors about missing package() function).

I have updated the PKGBUILD (add the package() function) and it's OK for me now.
Here is the updated PKGBUILD: https://gist.github.com/adetante/0b0e9a99436006bc7d19

Hi, I have troubles to make this package:
makepkg -s
returns an error about missing package() function in PKGBUILD.

makepkg -V
makepkg (pacman) 4.2.0

I think this is due to an incompatible PKGBUILD with my version of makepkg, but I'm new with archlinux and I don't know how to fix it. Any advice would be welcome! Thanks.
