Well, the intention is to use musl package with possible source code modifications and platform specific optimizations as an implementation for standard c library. These sources will be visible to 3rd party developers wishing to use libc services. 1. This is the opportunity to ask whether MIT license allows to do that. 2. As the developers have the freedom to use any compiler /linker they want, can I assume that only the required parts of the libc.a objects will be included in the resulting executable ?
