[erlang-patches] R17.0-rc1 patch for gzio.c compile breakage.

A dependency on zlib.h was recently removed (commit 8a147a7365).  This also
removes the definition of the macro "OF" which is required by gzio.c.  Now
"OF" is evidently defined by other headers on some systems, but on at least
Gentoo Linux this is not the case.

OF was needed to support compilation on now ancient C compilers.  I assume
R17 and newer doesn't need to support ancient C compilers.  See details at

The attached patch removes usage of OF in gzio.c
