Subject: Re: musl 0.8.8 released; all users should upgrade or patch

There's a nasty problem that slipped through in the new strtol family
code; numbers with leading spaces are rejected. Greatest apologies; it
happened from using an old version of my draft code when I merged
rather than the correct version with the space-skip like strtod did.
I've fixed them both now to include the space-skipping code directly
in __intscan and __floatscan instead of having the wrapper be
responsible, but the wide wrappers still need to be responsible
because they have to use iswspace rather than isspace.

For today, please just use git or manually apply the last few patches
from git to 0.8.8. I'll release 0.8.9 with this issue fixed, and any
fixes for other bugs that pop up in the meantime, tonight.
