[Cerowrt-devel] libmusl woes

so I was very happy babel-1.6.1 and dnsmasq-2.73 landed, and wanted to
try the latest cake code, and maybe, finally deploy a couple routers
this week. I'd mostly just been working on debian/ubuntu x86 when I
had time to do anything technical...

...sometime in the past month openwrt switched to libmusl, a new
"cleaner" libc replacing uclibc. I am not sure how (or even if I
should) to switch back to uclibc, but it broke a half dozen+ apps I
used to build regularly: tcsh, libposix for lua, pimd, etherwake,
netperf, strongswan, xinetd, tinc, and I forget what else.

Of these I managed to build netperf, and just went down the list
disabling everything else. I happen to use tinc on the vpn, but I
don't need it right now...

And just as I finally got a new build, jonathon dropped a new version
of cake on me. I mean, not less than 5 seconds, after I got a build to

Attempting to build (for the first time) the mve stuff (linksys 1900,
1200ac) failed completely with a:
