fix names of ipc_perm __key/__seq elements
previously the names were exposed as key/seq with _GNU_SOURCE and __ipc_perm_key/__ipc_perm/seq otherwise, whereas glibc always uses __key and __seq for the names. thus, the old behavior never matched glibc, and the new behavior always does, regardless of feature test macros. for now, i'm leaving the renaming here in sys/ipc.h where it's easy to change globally for all archs, in case something turns out to be wrong, but eventually the names could just be incorporated directly into the bits headers for each arch and the renaming removed.
