I'm certain we didn't add -I/usr/include or something similar. Could
you test this yourself to confirm it's not a bug?

The compiler warnings aren't being wrongly produced. musl will indeed
perform a signed-to-unsigned conversion here.

So whenever we find a bug on musl we should just stop all our
development until you've fixed the bug?
