Since I don't use, or follow, musl, not surprising I did not know that.

But I carefully read the include file, the source code, and the doc.  None
of those provided a clue.

You can't expect casual users to have followined your online chats.

If you gonna leave the code as is, then fix the doc.  gpsd has struggled
with this bug for years until I tracked it down.
