Subject: iproute2 & other software

Hi All,

Stephen (iproute2) sent me a mail telling me that he rejected my patch to
iproute2 for musl support:

1st reply:
I was waiting for others who had more to say on this.
Ok with providing small fixes, but can't really guarantee iproute to
work with other libraries.

& 2nd is :
Sorry, I have to reject this.
All include files in include/linux come from headers automatically
generated from upstream
Linux source. This is the only way to ensure long term ABI/API consistency
with kernel.

Either fix musl or submit patches to upstream kernel and get them merged.

Can we look into providing somekind of compatibility layer for header files
so that it's easier to get upstream projects like iproute2 to support musl ?

Kind regards,
