A lvm writecache volume will not get mounted on boot because the required dm_writecache module does not get loaded by lvm2 mkinitcpio hook.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
create lvm writecache volume. Add it to fstab and reboot.
Once the system drops to recovery-shell
vgchange -ay will load dm_writecache and set it to active just fine.
