    add btrfs module quirk for linux 3.14
    This patch adds in some extra hackery to make sure that users with btrfs
    root filesystems don't end up with unusable initrds due to the following
    change made upstream [1]. TL;DR: The btrfs module has dropped it's
    libcrc32c dependency, so mkinitcpio no longer pulls in the crc32c module
    necessary for the btrfs module to be inserted. The crc32c module was
    only pulled in previously due to mkinitcpio hackery [2], so extra
    hackery now seems like the logical path.
    This problem can be experienced by using linux-mainline on an Arch
    machine with a btrfs root filesystem. Besides from this extra hackery,
    an alternative workaround would be for users in this situation to add
    crc32c to their MODULES aray in their mkintcpio.conf. Of course, this
    needs to be done ahead of the linux-3.14 upgrade for them to avoid the
    problem (assuming none of their other modules depend on libcrc32c).
