Update linux kernel 4.9 >> 4.10

With minor glitches my update to the newest kernel went smoothly. I was expecting it yesterday so when I checked today and I got a "no updates status", I got suspicious. My target mirror might not be synchronized. So i went to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and cut and paste my mirrors a bit. I tried another mirror.

[donato@archdesktop ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu

Update Gnucash 2.6.16 --> 2.6.18
