[Buildroot] [PATCH] musl: workaround kernel if_ether.h header conflict

Add a patch that defines _LINUX_IF_ETHER_H in netinet/if_ether.h to avoid the
conflicting kernel if_ether.h.

Other musl distros (Alpine, Sabotage, Gentoo) patch[1] the kernel headers
instead. This is not practical in Buildroot, since we allow the user to choose
the kernel version.

This only fixes the normal case of including linux/if_ether.h (directly or
indirectly) after netinet/if_ether.h.

Fixes (tcpreplay):

This patch will take effect in the autobuilder after a rebuild of musl
toolchains.

+
+This is a workaround to the if_ether.h conflict between musl and the kernel.
+Both define struct ethhdr.
