From: Darrick J. Wong <darrick.wong@oracle.com>

Filesystems are not required to try to fill the statx btime field unless
the caller actually sets STATX_BTIME.  They're allowed to volunteer that
information "if it's cheap", but XFS doesn't volunteer and there may be
filesystems that support btime but not cheaply.

Either way, we want to test btime on any filesystem that supports it,
cheaply or otherwise, so set STATX_BTIME when we're trying to detect
support for it.
