How is this a musl-only problem?  I see that glibc also defines struct iphdr
in netinet/ip.h, so why doesn't it also suffer from this?

I find it really strange that this, therefore, only happens for musl
and we haven't had thousands of reports of this conflict with glibc
over the years.

I want an explanation, and suitably appropriate adjustments to the commit
message and comments of this change.

Thank you.
