[PATCH 4.14 287/315] f2fs: add MODULE_SOFTDEP to ensure crc32 is included in the initramfs

[ Upstream commit 0dd571785d61528d62cdd8aa49d76bc6085152fe ]

As marcosfrm reported in bugzilla:


Initramfs generators rely on "pre" softdeps (and "depends") to include
additional required modules.

F2FS does not declare "pre: crc32" softdep. Then every generator (dracut,
mkinitcpio...) has to maintain a hardcoded list for this purpose.

Hence let's use MODULE_SOFTDEP("pre: crc32") in f2fs code.

Fixes: 43b6573bac95 ("f2fs: use cryptoapi crc32 functions")
