When you say "reboot", you're saying that these messages appear as ArchLinux 
is trying to boot (after grub), right?  Not as it's shutting down?

Could you list the messages that appear before the error messages, so that we 
can get an idea of what stage you've got to in the boot process?

Like David, I also think this smells like an initramfs issue, and chances are 
that if you can chroot into your system somehow and run "mkinitcpio -p linux", 
it might help.
