When Grub2 is installed as the bootloader on a new or existing install it automatically labels bootloader entries 'Arch GNU/Linux'. This is incorrect branding. The distribution is named and trademarked as Arch Linux and therefore the default bootloader entries should be 'Arch Linux'.

This could be modified in /etc/grub.d/10_linux so that it is always set correctly.
