One-line patch to fix FTBFS (#987631). Also taking the opportunity to update the
Maintainer field; I hope that's OK.

The package currently in bullseye (same as buster) works, however it FTBFS with
[ Tests ]
There are no automated tests. I have been running the updated daemon for a few
days, and I tested an installation with the updated udeb (using a d-i daily image).
[ Risks ]
I built the package on buster with and without the patch, to see what would
change. The disassembly (objdump -d) was the same before and after, so I think I
can be confident the header was not actually used and the patch should not
change its behaviour.
However, the package had not been rebuilt since before buster was released, so
there could be unknown risks arising from rebuilding with the newer toolchain.

[ Other info ]
Very low popcon. The package provides hardware support for a specific subset of
armel/orion5x NAS devices with few remaining users.
The package builds a udeb. I tested an installation using a daily d-i image that
includes the update.
Cyril, can you (n)ack for d-i?
