For followup on my usecase, I've instead adapted bpftool to no longer require FTW_ACTIONRETVAL (this specific call to nftw was replaced with two nested readdir() loop), so bpftool now builds with stock musl without this. If there is ever interest again I'll be happy to finish polishing up any implementation for this as I think it's quite handy, but otherwise I'll just forget about it. Thanks, -- Dominique
