Subject: [PATCH iproute2 v2] configure: Remove include <sys/stat.h>

The check_name_to_handle_at() function in the configure script is
including sys/stat.h. This include fails with glibc 2.36 like this:
In file included from /linux-5.15.84/include/uapi/linux/stat.h:5,
                 from /toolchain-x86_64_gcc-12.2.0_glibc/include/bits/statx.h:31,
                 from /toolchain-x86_64_gcc-12.2.0_glibc/include/sys/stat.h:465,
                 from config.YExfMc/name_to_handle_at_test.c:3:
/linux-5.15.84/include/uapi/linux/types.h:10:2: warning: #warning "Attempt to use kernel headers from user space, see" [-Wcpp]
   10 | #warning "Attempt to use kernel headers from user space, see"
      |  ^~~~~~~

                 from /linux-5.15.84/include/uapi/linux/types.h:14:
/linux-5.15.84/include/uapi/linux/stddef.h:5:10: fatal error: linux/compiler_types.h: No such file or directory
    5 | #include <linux/compiler_types.h>
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

Just removing the include works, the manpage of name_to_handle_at() says
only fcntl.h is needed.

Fixes: c5b72cc56bf8 ("lib/fs: fix issue when {name,open}_to_handle_at() is not implemented")
