Instead, user space should call statx() here, which continues to be supported as a superset.

Yes, that works for me, I only care about the ABI issues: we have to ensure that the kernel interfaces in the upstream musl port are the same ones that are used in the upstream kernel port, to avoid breaking applications built on these after everything is upstream. (We can break compatibility with existing non-upstream user space for the moment, which is the point of this review). Any implementation details within musl that do not impact the ABI can come later. I mainly pointed out these three because I expected them to already have generic code in musl, given that the kernel does not require architecture specific definitions for these. If you have custom definitions, that introduces a certain risk that these correspond to an earlier private kernel version of yours rather than what will become the official port. Arnd
