It would be nice to ship a valgrind suppressions file shipped with
Musl to ignore these, I have always found it very helpful to have as a
part of the documentation in order to not worry about trying to work
out myself which are false positives when working with a project. You
can use valgrind --gen-suppressions to produce them, but I guess we
need to check that they are not in fact bugs!

(The valgrind maintainers are also very responsive to issues)
