iso-scan/filename= does not search btrfs partitions

Bug Description

When booting an ISO image from GRUB, the scripts in initrd.lz probe partitions for the file given by the iso-scan/filename= kernel option. However a whitelist in the initrd file /scripts/lupin-helpers only considers partitions with filesystems of the types ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs, jfs, reiserfs, vfat, ntfs, and iso9660, and will therefore fail to mount an ISO located on a btrfs partition. Adding btrfs to this list worked fine for me when testing with a 15.04 iso. I'm guessing its exclusion is just an historic artifact.
