[PATCH v2 17/18] Provide __size_t via <sys/_types.h>

Various FreeBSD source and header files need a typedef __size_t via
<sys/_types.h>.  Unfortunately the GCC provided <stddef.h> uses

	#if (defined (__FreeBSD__) && (__FreeBSD__ >= 5)) \
	  || defined(__DragonFly__) \
	  || defined(__FreeBSD_kernel__)
	/* __size_t is a typedef on FreeBSD 5, must not trash it. */
	#elif defined (__VMS__)
	/* __size_t is also a typedef on VMS.  */
	#define __size_t

and therefore defines __size_t on Newlib targets which would trash a
__size_t typedef.  Include <stddef.h> before <sys/_types.h> in
<sys/types.h> and undefine __size_t in <sys/_types.h> as a workaround.
