The following entries in the efibootmgr package aren't correct in the manual.

-l | --loader NAME
Specify a loader (defaults to \\elilo.efi)

Because the Archlinux package is patched, the loader doesn't default to "\\elilo.efi" but to

-L | --label LABEL
Boot manager display label (defaults to "Linux")

Furthermore the label doesn't default to "Linux" but to "Arch Linux (GRUB2)"

P.S.: Sorry for the double post of this issue, it's the first time I report a bug to the bugtracker. (Advices are welcome)

This task depends upon

The patches are no longer applied from efibootmgr-0.6.0 pkg onwards. So if there is any mistake it should be in upstream sources. This bug report can be closed.
