Has there been any movement on PR21002 recently? Last comment is from 2
years ago (2018-03-11).

Gentoo Linux has bugs https://bugs.gentoo.org/602126 and
https://bugs.gentoo.org/701478 , and I don't doubt other distributions that
use musl-libc (eg. Void linux, Alpine, Adelie) will also be patching this
for their use.
