This is a nonlinear constraint, no?
Nick Cox's answer to this question two years ago probably still stands:

‑xtivreg2‑ will, however, accommodate linear constraints if the estimation uses the ‑cue‑ or continuously-updated GMM option. The CUE estimator is implemented by a call to ‑ml‑, and you can pass options to ‑ml‑ with the ‑xtivreg2‑ option ‑cueopt‑. If you do this, be sure you have the latest version of ‑ivreg2‑ installed, 2.1.15; earlier versions had a bug in the implementation of the CUE estimator.
As for AR(1) errors, ‑xtivreg2‑ give you two possibilites, neither of which is exactly what you want. First, you can use the ‑cluster‑ option, which allows for arbitrary within-panel autocorrelation. Second, you can use the ‑bw‑ option for "Newey-West" and related kernel-based robust covariance estimation.
