Subject: Pending patches/issues before 0.9.15 release?

Hi all,

I know the next release is behind schedule, and I'm trying to get it
ready soon. Please let me know any pending patches or issues that
haven't been addressed which I should review/commit before release.
Below are some I'm already aware of.


>From Timo Teräs/fabled/Alpine:

>From Michael Forney:

- simplify strcmp
- add putspent
- fix putgrent (missing newline, error handling)
- dn_expand fix
- dn_comp stub
- getopt_long abbreviated options

>From Paul Schutte:

- adding version reporting to (and elsewhere?)

>From nsz's review of pkgsrc failures:

- getloadavg
- NO_ADDRESS in netdb.h
- c_ispeed and c_ospeed in termios
- termio.h
- net/if_packet.h
- ffsl
- sys/perm.h

(Note that this is just a selection of topics from the thread which
looked like they were easy to address on the musl side and which might
improve practical compatibility, but it's not 100% clear to me that
they should all be added.)

And some misc stuff:

- Revisiting NULL definition
