Unixlib patches

  Earlier today I found a few minor glitches in the Unixlib headers that were
included in Unixlib 4.00 (the version on www.riscos.info).
  Firstly, Unixlib makes extensive use of "__restrict" in its headers.
Norcroft C (v5.53) doesn't seem to recognise __restrict as a valid C language
element and ends up producing numerous errors. A patch for this is included
  Finally, there's a minor bug in sys/socket.h. This causes bits/socket.h to
complain that it should not be included directly. The patch corrects a typo
(?) in sys/socket.h that causes bits/socket.h to act as if it had been
#included directly.
