This does not apply whatsoever to musl since musl does not use kernel
headers at all -- unless you want to count the few wrappers in sys/*.h
which this thread is about, but musl is not actually "using" the
kernel headers here, just helping applications that use the official
<sys/*.h> includes find the kernel headers for their own use.
