USB Quirk for Corsair STRAFE Gaming Keyboard

This adds a USB quirk to allow a Corsair STRAFE Gaming Keyboard to work with
FreeBSD. It is based on the already existing quirks for the other 2 Corsair
keyboards that have quirks already. The patch was against 10.3-RELEASE, but I
imagine it could be ported to other versions of FreeBSD as well.

One minor, semi-annoying note with the keyboard under FreeBSD, though. Prior to
booting FreeBSD, the keyboard works fine within the BIOS and the bootloader.
Once booting, the keyboard shuts off, which is expected as the USB controllers
need to be initialized by FreeBSD. Once FreeBSD initializes the USB
controllers, the keyboard's Scroll Lock light begins to blink. I've read that
this is because the keyboard has been placed into a "BIOS Mode" of some sort,
but this model of keyboard doesn't contain a hardware switch that some other
Corsair keyboards have to enable/disable BIOS Mode. It was happening even
without the quirk in place. I do not know enough about the keyboard's BIOS Mode
or FreeBSD's USB stack to know why this is happening.
