Subject: musl's asctime catches Python bug

> I've been working through the Python test suite (2.7.13) on musl (1.1.16). 
> There were a couple over-zealous tests involving errno, and locale tests that

There was another bug that I didn't want to mention until Python security 
had a chance to respond: undefined behavior in their asctime()/ctime() 
wrappers for year > 9999, found by virtue of musl's use of a_crash to 
highlight the problem.

The public discussion is at https://bugs.python.org/issue31339 if anyone's 
interested.

Cheers,
