Are you interested in warnings provided by clang, but not by gcc? I've 
noticed that there are a few things in musl which clang warns about, but 
gcc doesn't; such as expressions where operator precedence might be 
confusing to some, and indexing into strings using + (it wants you to 
use [] instead).
