I can reproduce with your binaries, but not with self-built ones.

Your binaries seem to have an executable stack:

   STACK off    0x00000000 vaddr 0x00000000 paddr 0x00000000 align 2**4
         filesz 0x00000000 memsz 0x00000000 flags rwx

Make sure that your binaries are compiled with -msecure-plt and
-Wl,--secure-plt. (The musl gcc patches should enable these options
