Looks like your initramfs got borked when you updated the kernel.  Make
sure to read the recent news article [1] about systemd-tools replacing
udev (and maybe the last question in the troubleshooting section of the
pacman wiki page [2]), and be sure to run this after updating (but
before rebooting):

# mkinitcpio -p linux
