Looking into "mkinitcpio" it makes an assumption that
/usr/lib/initcpio/busybox exists -- while in your rescue arch-chroot,
try just re-installing "mkinitcpio-busybox" package. It provides the
'init' function as I referenced earlier, which mkinitcpio symlinks to:

  $ /usr/lib/initcpio/busybox --list | grep init

Perhaps your busybox binary is somehow broken; after reinstall run
mkinitcpio -p linux again to rebuild your initramfs and see if that
