This is a known problem, and I don't have a good general solution. The
problem is (I think), that your font is set before your graphics
driver has been loaded, and once the graphics driver has been loaded
the settings are lost.
Essentially what needs to happen is that
systemd-vconsole-setup.service must be run after the graphics driver
has been loaded.
Three ways to do this:
1) put your graphics driver in MODULES in mkinitcpio.conf.
2) put your graphics driver in /etc/modules-load.d/graphics.conf and
order systemd-vconsole-setup.service After
3) order systemd-vconsole-setup.service After and Wants
Option 2) probably is the best as it has the least impact on boot
speed (I guess).
