Subject: musl 1.1.24 released

This version adds the GLOB_TILDE extension for glob, a non-stub
implementation of the catgets localization API, and posix_spawn
extensions for chdir in the child. Many arch-specific bugs are fixed,
some serious, including CVE-2019-14697 affecting several math
functions only on i386, broken riscv64 atomics, broken lseek with
large offsets on x32 and mipsn32, and broken setjmp/longjmp on mipsr6.
Various low-severity, non-arch-specific bugs are also fixed.

In addition, this release cycle sets the internal groundwork for
moving 32-bit archs to 64-bit time_t, needed for their future
viability as Y2038 approaches. Most of the changes are not externally
visible, but some affect which syscalls are used. Notably, mips64
stat-family functions can now report 64-bit file timestamps correctly,
and some time-related breakage on x32 is fixed. In addition, select no
longer stores remaining time back to the timeout argument. Previously,
whether it did so was arch-dependent and merely a consequence of the
Linux syscall behavior, which was found to be mildly non-conforming.
