I haven't done detailed tests to confirm, but I believe the bug is
fixed in 4.9.2. However there's another very serious bug that affects
4.9.2 and possibly all 4.9.x releases causing incorrect code gen:

On the musl side, we worked aroung bug 61144 with gratuitous use of
volatile before 4.9.2 was released. This workaround might be reverted
at some point in the future if the affected versions are deemed too
buggy for any distros to keep them around.
