Magic entries for BTRFS and Software RAID

I’ve just discovered that the magic database for the file(1) command in Debian/Unstable has no support for Linux Software RAID and that it’s support for BTRFS is lacking (no reporting of space used, number of devices, or the UUID). Below is my first draft of a change to fix these problems. I would appreciate it if someone with a big-endian system could test these out and let me know how they go, I suspect that I will have to change the “lelong” types to “long” but I’m not sure.

>4120 belong x \b%8x:

>4168 lelong x level=%d
>4188 lelong x disks=%d
