Arch linux support

Please add Arch linux to your supported distributions, if you have Gentoo in there, Arch should not be any more of a support hell than that.

    I spoke to customer service after applying a kernel upgrade to my Arch Linux droplet. Apparently this breaks DigitalOcean's hypervisor.

    Since Arch Linux tracks the latest release of the Linux kernel, either updating will always break the system, or updating will eventually break the system since all Arch Linux packages presume the latest kernel is installed.

    An LTS distribution of Arch Linux is available. This version should be available if Arch Linux is supported for a droplet image. Otherwise Arch should not be supported since it will break.
