[SOLVED] New error on mkinitcpio with filesystem 2016.11-3

During a system upgrade yesterday my filesystem package was upgraded to version 2016.11-3. Today another system upgrade included btrfs-progs, which triggered mkinitcpio to run. The output was:

==> Building image from preset: /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset: 'default'
  -> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g /boot/initramfs-linux.img

This line had me worried:

==> ERROR: file not found: `/usr/lib/modprobe.d/usb-load-ehci-first.conf'

The file in question is referenced in /usr/lib/initcpio/install/base which is owned by mkinitcpio. I naturally enough checked what package is supposed to provide the missing file, and that is the filesystem package. However, the filesystem package in testing does not provide this file.

The system boots up without issues, and my journal does not complain about anything either so I can't see any problems caused by this. I am just not sure if this change is intended or not. Should I file a bugreport to the filesystem package about the missing file?

I didn't see that, I suppose I should conduct better searches before posting. I'll mark this as solved based on that bug report.
