[PATCH v2 1/3] Avoid cyclic header dependencies

RTEMS uses a considerable part of FreeBSD kernel and user space sources.
These sources are compiled with a __FreeBSD__ define.  On 2018-06-26
Gerald Pfeifer changed the GCC provided <stddef.h> so that it includes
<sys/_types.h> if __FreeBSD__ is defined.  The Newlib <sys/_types.h>
included <sys/lock.h> which includes <sys/cdefs.h> on RTEMS which
includes <stddef.h>.  To get rid of this cyclic dependency move the
optional _flock_t definition to <sys/reent.h>.
