Subject: Support for musl libc in OpenWrt

Hi All,

Support for musl libc in OpenWrt has been added in revision r34314, this 
was tested against:

- X86 in VirtualBox
- X86_64 with UML
- ARM with the realview target

Note that the following issues are known:

- unable to complete libstdc++ build due to some missing declarations (WIP)
- MIPS and MIPSel ports are not functionnal (details below)
- PowerPC has not been tested at all due to lack of hardware/emulation 

I did not try yet to compile our entire set of packages besides the one 
pre-selected in trunk, so you will certainly encounter some breakage due 
to musl being more strict about header inclusions and declarations than 
uClibc and (e)glibc.

Have fun!
MIPS and MIPSel specific issues:

using qemu's binary emulation (qemu-mips[el]) against a statically 
linked binary works, a dynamic binary makes my host qemu segv. Using 
qemu-system-mips[el], the binary segfaults while being executed by the 
kernel. So far I have not had the time to debug this further.
