Touchbar on 15inch Macbook 2016

I have spare 15inch Macbook 2016 which I would like to turn into linux machine Model identifier (MacBookPro13.3) without T2 chip. Since I want machine to remain a bit portable would be good to have touchbar working since there is no physical ESC button. Initially I tried prepared ISO from and touchbar was working fine, however it has old Ubuntu version, old kernel and it is ubuntu.

My install of manjaro was completely fresh, updated everything, updated kernel to 6.4.9 installed dkms and installed:

added ```
MODULES=(applespi intel_lpss_pci spi_pxa2xx_platform)

apple_ib_tb is shown in the lsmod. Dkms status also return that it is installed (also shows that original exists, not sure if it is bad thing).
However while keyboard and touchbar works out of the box even without this module, I was not able to get touchbar working. I checked dmesg but nothing suspicious. How can I troubleshoot this issue?

Have a look here: GitHub - Dunedan/mbp-2016-linux at and under ‘Issues’ Patched touchbar driver not working in kernel 6.0 · Issue #189 · Dunedan/mbp-2016-linux · GitHub
Alternatively, try the 5.15LTS kernel.

Correct me if I am wrong, but AUR package already contains patch even for 6.4.x. And I don’t get any compile error, everything completes with no errors, DKMS also shows module as installed.
