This usage is not intended to work. At present it might be possible to
make it work for programs that don't use dlopen or TLS (which isn't
supported yet anyway), but in the long term I think using the GNU
dynamic linker is going to get more and more unrealistic, so it's
probably best not to even try.

Did you change the options musl was compiled/linked with? Naively, my
first guess is that -Bsymbolic-functions was omitted.
