[arch-projects] [mkinitcpio] [PATCH 2/3] mkinitcpio-generate-shutdown-ramfs.service: Don't fail after kernel updates

When the module directory matching $(uname -r) cannot be found, generation
of the shutdown ramfs aborted:

systemd[1]: Starting Generate shutdown-ramfs...
mkinitcpio[1944]: ==> ERROR: '/lib/modules/3.12.1-1-ARCH' is not a valid kernel module directory
systemd[1]: mkinitcpio-generate-shutdown-ramfs.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
systemd[1]: Failed to start Generate shutdown-ramfs.
systemd[1]: Unit mkinitcpio-generate-shutdown-ramfs.service entered failed state.

Tell mkinitcpio that we do not wish to add any kernel modules.
