hm i might be wrong:

there is a requirement in c and posix that the address of a
standard function can be taken and that == is only true for
function pointers if they point to the same function

but i don't see any requirement that each library function
must be distinct

and there is a dr that implies the opposite:

without explanation the response says h can return 0.

the musl math library currently defines distinct long double
functions even if long double and double have the same
representation, they could be weak aliases if the standard
allows this..
