QGIS 2.8.16 64 bit (but also in master) on Windows 7 SP1 64 bit

During postintall procedures, crssync.exe runs in order to synchronize CRS database with GDAL/PROJ definitions: while new projected coordinate systems names are properly imported in srs.db, new geographical coordinate systems names are all (338) set to "Imported from GDAL" also when they have a name.

The bug is caused by a typo ("GEOCS" instead of "GEOGCS")in QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem::syncDb()

QString name( OSRIsGeographic( crs ) ? OSRGetAttrValue( crs, "GEOCS" "GEOGCS", 0 ) : OSRGetAttrValue( crs, "PROJCS", 0 ) );
if ( name.isEmpty() )
name = QObject::tr( "Imported from GDAL" );
