I think this looks ok but I'm going to make a couple minor corrections
to the message and patch when merging it. "make musl compile with the
unmodified..." does not make sense because musl does not use kernel
headers at all. What the patch does is make it possible to compile
applications that include both the musl and Linux headers (if the libc
ones come first). Also alignment should be done with spaces not tabs
(not assuming any particular tab width). There are probably some
places this is wrong in musl's headers now but I don't want to keep
adding more.
