No, not that I know. The last request was to open bugs for any
remaining issues. I don't believe that has been done. So we don't know
if there are any issues left.

As far as I know those distributions haven't pushed any patches
upstream for this issue. If you could help them post any patches so
they can be reviewed that would be appreciated.

Note that musl libc doesn't provide various standard GNU glibc
functions, so it might not be that simple to get things to compile and
run correctly against it.
