Bug#611555: initramfs-tools: Modules needed for btrfs not included in initramfs
 
Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.98.8
Severity: important

The btrfs module depends on libcrc32c which requires a crc32c
provider like crc32c, but does not specify it in depends; and
the module is thus not included. The result is that if you
choose to install with / formatted as btrfs, the installation
is not able to boot.

A possible solution is to include the crc32c module whenever
a module requests libcrc32c.

Since you're reporting against version 0.98.8:

| initramfs-tools (0.98.8) unstable; urgency=high
| [...]
| * [78d9e04] initramfs-tools: Handle hidden dependency of libcrc32c on
| crc32c. (Closes: #608538)

This is supposed to provide exactly what you're asking for.
What am I missing?
