Subject: musl 1.1.6 released

I'm pleased to announce the release of musl 1.1.6:

This release features a major overhaul in the handling of atomic
operations on ARM targets, improving efficiency when built for recent
(v7+) cpu models and ensuring (via runtime detection) that baseline
ARM binaries, which traditionally depended on the kernel's
kuser_helper page for atomic support, work even on newer cpu/kernel
combinations where it might be disabled for hardening purposes.
Extensions to the getopt, getopt_long, and fnmatch functions have been
added for greater compatibility with applications, and various
low-impact bugs have been fixed.

Special thanks goes out to our release sponsors:

The midipix project -
Hurricane Labs -
Pascal Cuoq
