I think we have two or three options, please make a choice (I currently 
working now on this)

/boot (place like now kernel+memtest+syslinux here)


/boot/syslinux (place only syslinux files here)
/archlinux/boot (place kernel+memtest)

/syslinux (place only syslinux files here)
/archlinux/boot (place kernel+memtest)
