Subject[PATCH v2] powerpc: fix EDEADLOCK redefinition error in uapi/asm/errno.h
A few archs like powerpc have different errno.h values for macros
EDEADLOCK and EDEADLK. In code including both libc and linux versions of
errno.h, this can result in multiple definitions of EDEADLOCK in the
include chain. Definitions to the same value (e.g. seen with mips) do
not raise warnings, but on powerpc there are redefinitions changing the
value, which raise warnings and errors (if using "-Werror").

Guard against these redefinitions to avoid build errors like the following,
first seen cross-compiling libbpf v5.8.9 for powerpc using GCC 8.4.0 with
musl 1.1.24:

In file included from ../../arch/powerpc/include/uapi/asm/errno.h:5,
from ../../include/linux/err.h:8,
from libbpf.c:29:
../../include/uapi/asm-generic/errno.h:40: error: "EDEADLOCK" redefined [-Werror]

In file included from toolchain-powerpc_8540_gcc-8.4.0_musl/include/errno.h:10,
from libbpf.c:26:
toolchain-powerpc_8540_gcc-8.4.0_musl/include/bits/errno.h:58: note: this is the location of the previous definition
#define EDEADLOCK 58

cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

Fixes: 95f28190aa01 ("tools include arch: Grab a copy of errno.h for arch's supported by perf")
Fixes: c3617f72036c ("UAPI: (Scripted) Disintegrate arch/powerpc/include/asm")
