[arch-projects] [mkinitcpio][PATCH] check if module is builtin kernel in add_module

When we want to make sure a module is added to initcpio, but the module
is built in the kernel, we now get an error the module is not found.
Therefore we should check if the module is builtin and don't fail when
its found there.

example: when sd_mod is built in your kernel you got an error before

==> ERROR: module not found: `sd_mod'

but the module can be found in /lib/modules/$KERNELNAME/modules.builtin
