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")
