Subject: musl 0.9.3 released

Hi all,

After a few days' delay, here is the next release, 0.9.3, as promised:

    New experimental MIPS port (32-bit, o32 ABI, static-linked-only at
    this point). Various dynamic linker/loader bugs fixed. Network
    service name lookup support from /etc/services. Wrappers for more
    non-POSIX Linux syscalls. Overhauled crypt() with drastic
    reductions in memory usage and run time. Fixes for several
    important thread bugs including internal lock corruption, spurious
    sem_trywait failure, and race conditions on detached-thread exit,
    as well as various minor bug fixes.

A few pending issues that will be addressed after the release are
fixing the ARM setjmp/longjmp code not to break callers that are using
the fpu, improving memcpy (and other string functions) performance on
x86 with asm, and getting dynamic-linking support into the mips port.
I'd also like to finish and integrate the rest of rdp's porting work
(mips64, ppc, and microblaze) and possibly get an x32 (32-bit ABI on
x86_64) port underway, and integrate additional hash function support
(blowfish, sha, md5) for crypt.

Priority scheduling and related realtime issues are something I
haven't really touched yet, but it's also on the table for later in
the 0.9.x series.
