[New-bugs-announce] [issue28000] Build fails on AIX with _LINUX_SOURCE_COMPAT flag

New submission from Matthieu S:

Python build fails on AIX when using the _LINUX_SOURCE_COMPAT flag.

When using this flag, the gethostbyname_r subroutine has 6 parameters instead of 3, like on Linux, but Modules/socketmodule.c always expects a gethostbyname_r subroutine with only 3 parameters on AIX.

The attached patch allows to build with this flag. It has been tested for Python 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 with GCC and XLC compilers.
