Subject: tcmalloc compatibility

Dear Sirs,

Could you please be so kind to fix muls compatibility with tcmalloc
(libtcmalloc_minimal in particular). Seems that tcmalloc developers
can't fix all issues without  corresponding changes of musl.

Small cite from tcmalloc bug-report:

>> Doesn't look like musl will ever support replacing their malloc for
dynamically linked musl.

All appropriate details you can find at the page:

Because of this many important software can't be ported properly to
Alpine linux because they depends from libtcmalloc_minimal.

My personal competencies are not enough for that fixes. Therefore, I
appeal in support of both libraries.

Thank you in advance,
