I should have been cc:ed on this.

This problem also exists in PKTGEN. And this fix is incorrect as
neither is dependent on the IP part of the networking stack in any
substantive way. The right fix is to make inet_aton available outside
of CONFIG_INET (preferred) or making private copies of inet_aton.
