[Bridge] Update to RSTP lib

Here are the unified diff files as requested.

You are right about #pragma pack(). That's supported on pretty much all compilers. However, __attribute__ is not supported on all compilers and that's what was used in the original code. Our goal was to leave the gcc syntax the way it was in the original code. If you are ok with getting rid of the __attribute__((packed)), the code will be a lot more readable.

If you want your patch to be understandable, create it as a contextual
diff with the -u option.

Do the pack pragmas really need to be conditional?  Pretty much every
compiler will do the right thing on encountering those.  (Using
__attribute__ as well, for compilers that support it, isn't a bad
thing but no need to avoid #pragma pack on gcc).
