I had not realized that musl used BSD semantics.  You can drop that, if
you want.

I'm not sure whether the includes are expected by some programs.

Not in the patch; glibc has it in sys/file.h, which I somehow missed.
I'm inclined to say keep the test and I'll send a patch for that, but
take your pick.

For unknown reasons it looks like sys/file.h has no content except that
protected by _GNU_SOURCE | _BSD_SOURCE -- which sounds like an
unnecessary test.
