Fix limits.h NL_NMAX namespace (bug 19929)

bits/xopen_lim.h (included by limits.h if __USE_XOPEN) defines
NL_NMAX, but this constant was removed in the 2008 edition of POSIX so
should not be defined in that case.  This patch duly disables that
define for __USE_XOPEN2K8.  It remains enabled for __USE_GNU to avoid
affecting sysconf (_SC_NL_NMAX), the implementation of which uses
"#ifdef NL_NMAX".

Tested for x86_64 and x86 (testsuite, and that installed stripped
shared libraries are unchanged by the patch).
