[Bug libc/2752] New: dont redefine __attribute__ in error.h with -std=c99

we hit a neat little error with some code when including error.h and 
using -std=c99 ... the question is whether this is a feature :)

take for example the attached code ... when built with -std=c99, 
__STRICT_ANSI__ is defined by gcc which causes error.h to macro away the gcc  
__attribute__ extension since gcc doesnt consider __attribute__ to ever be 

perhaps a better idea would be to use __error_attribute__ inside of the header 
so that it doesnt pollute the namespace of the code that includes it ... 
patch attached
