That was sort of the point of making it an alias, i think.
Code that uses it still doesn't compile, but if it was compiled with 
gnulibc headers it at least links against musl.
This satisfies both requirements of "musl should encourage standards 
compliance" and "musl should be able to run nvidia drivers"

I just want it to also satisfy "musl code should serve as reference 
implementation of a standards compliant libc", which it doesnt
if gnu compatibility code is mixed in indifferent.
