Subject: inet_ntop bug in 1.1.19

(Please CC me on any replies, I'm not subscribed to the list)

inet_ntop doesn't conform to RFC 5952 (A Recommendation for IPv6 Address
Text Representation).

I attached a test program to demonstrate the issue and a patch:
$ cc inet_ntop_test.c musl-1.1.19/src/network/inet_ntop.c
$ ./a.out
Section 4.2.2 test failed: got 2001:db8::1:1:1:1:1, expected
Found 1 error.
