1.1.6-libc.patch

libnet fails to compile with following errors with musl:


libtool: compile:  clang -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../include -I../include -march=native -O2 -pipe -c libnet_
link_linux.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/libnet_link_linux.o

This issue was fixed in upstream and I suggest applying this patch also to libnet-1.1.6.
