kernel command line looks a bit weird, full path to kernel is added two
times!, of course does not cause any harm. Just for example:

/init: eval: line 1: boot/i686/vmlinuz=y: not found
/init: eval: line 1: boot/i686/vmlinuz=y: not found

# cat /proc/cmdline
boot/i686/vmlinuz boot/i686/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch
archisolabel=ARCH_201301 initrd=boot/i686/archiso.img console=ttyS0
