Subject: Implementation of GLOB_TILDE


I'm sending as attachment a a patch that implments the GLOB_TILDE 
extension to
the glob function.

This functions is helpful to compile some software that otherwise would 
compile(without patching) with musl like i3wm.

I tested the code(test file as attachment) and the results seem to be 

I have a few questions though:
  * How do I contribute to musl? Should I just send patches to this 
mailing list
    or should I make pull requests?

  * I defined GLOB_TILDE as 0x100, but I think this won't work on 
    that have sizeof(int) == 2, as the flags argument in glob is an int.

  * I think it's best to define GLOB_TILDE in glob.h inside a '#if
    defined(_GNU_SOURCE) || defined(_BSD_SOURCE)' what do you think?

  * I had to copy strlcat and strlcpy to glob.c so I could use them. I 
had to do
    this because musl isn't compile as _GNU_SOURCE or _BSD_SOURCE so 
    doesn't expose these functions. How should I fix this?
