Btrfs-progs: make btrfsck a hardlink at install time
btrfsck gets hardlinked to btrfs during the build, but the install phase simply copies them both to the destination without preserving the link. Just force-link btrfsck in the destination again during install so that the installed btrfsck is a link as well.
