If the glibc xattr.h header is included after the uapi header,
compilation fails due to an enum re-using a #define from the
uapi header.  Protect against this by guarding the define and
enum inclusions against each other.

(See https://lists.debian.org/debian-glibc/2014/03/msg00029.html
and https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Synchronizing_Headers
for more information.)

v2: As Allan McRae points out, __UAPI_DFE_XATTR should only be
    set to zero when _SYS_XATTR_H is defined.
