Thanks for the patch! I rebuilt the musl libc, copied the lib to my old
linux box and Postgres is running well now.

 All 136 tests passed.

It's interesting that when I built Postgres on this same old Linux using
the native libc but it fails to run.

pg_regress: postmaster did not respond within 60 seconds

Building with musl on a modern Linux works on an old Linux. But building
Postgres on the old Linux with the native libc gives me a broken Postgres.
That's why I'm interested in musl libc.
