Default etc: remove Arch-specific mirrorlist from repo

I think we can close FS#5885 after this (which means "yeah, bring it on!"). ;-)
I think separate mirrorlist package is better than merging it with
filesystem package
- it will be more clear to users what pacman is trying to update.
Of course, mirrorlist should be in a backup array. If user is
satisfied with his/her (sorted) mirrorlist - he/she can just delete
And 3.1.1 is perfectly fine for this, no need to wait for 3.2.
