So it's definitely returning an IPv4 socket (which Thrift throws away
in favour of the IPv6 socket). Since no adapter has the IPv6 address
returned,  bind(2) would fail on a subsequent call.

After applying the patch [1] to musl,

# ./test -v
struct addrinfo {
   ai_flags:        0
   ai_family:       2
   ai_socktype:     1
   ai_protocol:     6
   ai_addrlen:      16
   ai_addr:
      family:       2
      addr:         127.0.0.1
      port:         0
   ai_canonname:    localhost
   ai_next:         0
}
