[mediawiki/extensions/Wikibase@master] Add ircs as supported protocol for URL values

@Lydia_Pintscher do we want this for Wikidata or for all Wikibases that don’t customize the urlSchemes setting? (I.e. should this be set in Wikibase or in the production config?)

I'd say we should treat it the same way as irc, which I believe is for all Wikibase instances.
