package/syslog-ng: fix segfault on startup due to pthread_atfork
syslog-ng may segfault at startup (during library initialization, before reaching main) in newer toolchains. I have witnessed it on aarch64 (but with 32-bit arm userland) with glibc 2.28. Problem is described in syslog-ng issue #2263 [1], which in turn leads to a problem in 'ivykis' which is shipped with syslog-ng, see ivykis issue #15 [2]. Root cause is that 'pthread_atfork' is used by ivykis but searched by its configure script in libpthread_nonshared only. In newer toolchains, it seems this symbol is in libc_nonshared. Apply a patch someone proposed via pullrequest [3] to the ivykis project, but which is at this moment not yet merged upstream.

+Subject: [PATCH] look for pthread_atfork() also in lib c_nonshared
+
+Newer versions of glibc do not have pthread_nonshared anymore, instead the
+symbol is in c_nonshared. This fixes a crash on start on those platforms
+(namely with syslog-ng).
