If you had posted your patch inline (as git intended it) I could comment
on it directly, but now thunderbird won't quote it.

First, you introduced a broken if [ ... ] statement in the first hunk
that will cause an error (missing space).

Second, the original commiter intended the console font to be set in
mkinitcpio.conf, so he can remove the consolefont setting in rc.conf.
Apparently his system boots faster this way.

Third, using a * in finding the file may return several files.
Furthermore, the * won't be expanded because it is quoted.

Did you test this patch at all?
