According to musl source, all currently supported architectures have
__NR_socket (I didn't check the other calls; I just assumed that
__NR_socket was a stand-in for all the other ones).

Therefore the required change can be performed by changing the
__socketcall macro (and __socketcall_cp of course). Something like this,
maybe? (If using GCC statement expressions is alright):

#ifdef __NR_socketcall
#define __socketcall(nm, a, b, c, d, e, f) \
    ({int r = __syscall(__NR_ ## nm, a, b, c, d, e, f); \
    if (r == -ENOSYS) \
        r = __syscall(__NR_socketcall, __SC_ ## nm, \
            (long[6]){(long)a, (long) b, (long)c, (long)d, (long)e, (long) f});
#define __socketcall(nm, a, b, c, d, e, f) __syscall(__NR_ ## nm, a, b, c, d, e, f)
