So far, I've had some good success: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/1acc873aa118 https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/660da1ec99c0 https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/3ec8c96f4d53 https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7c6f9f854cfc https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/a3096ca24124 All but the last one should be available in the next Firefox release (74). I believe the last remaining remaining issue is usage of getcontext in tools/profiler. I've just filed a bug at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1615713. I have a couple ideas for a fix (outlined in that bug), but haven't written a patch yet. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know! In one of the reviews, the reviewer mentioned about the existence of build target support tiers: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Supported_build_configurations I was thinking that once Firefox can build with musl out of the box, it would be really great to see if we can get Mozilla to consider musl to be a Tier 3 target (at least x86_64), so we can avoid any musl regressions in the future. -Michael
