We build openjdk8 for alpine linux using musl.

The build scripts are at:
http://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/tree/community/openjdk8

It uses openjdk7 (built via icedtea) to bootstrap.

The patch fix your specific issue is:
http://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/tree/community/openjdk8/icedtea-jdk-musl.patch

and as you see, sysctl.h is not really needed and can be just removed.
