Rich, thank you very much for the answer. It was very quick and helpful.

In this case, I will probably adapt the copy of MUSL I'm using. I plan to
test it with several different program analyzers, and the issue would
probably come up multiple times. As you say, these program analyzers often
assume quite restrictive models.

Thank you also for the list of other places where MUSL has specific
assumptions. I will look into them.

Best regards,
