[OE-core] [PATCH V3] multilib_header: Place a #include guard to avoid infinite inclusion of headers

In cases where extra preprocessing tools are used such as clang-tidy
e.g. and these tools are not passed the knowledge about architecture
then a corner case comes where we enter into include loop for
bits/wordsize.h, since this template does explicitly include

so it synthesized a guard out of file name e.g.

bits/wordsize.h -> __OE_BITS_WORDSIZE_H__

and emits the guard at beginning of file

v3: Prepend `OE` to include guard to make it not conflict with other headers
