Subject: patch: sequence points in memset

Following a recent discussion of statements shaped like x = x = c;, the attached patch introduces additional sequence points in musl's implementation of memset, because no realistic target platform benefits from the lack of sequence points in the current version, and if a hypothetical target (VLIW maybe?) was designed to benefit from the lack of sequence point, the lack of sequence point might just as well cause harm.
