Hi Rich,

I tried your attached patch on a mips32 be system and it worked. With 
this patch gdb was able to find the shared libraries which were loaded 
with dlopen(). I tested this on OpenWrt 19.07 with musl 1.1.24 and gdb 
8.3.1 using gdbserver.

It would be nice if you could add it to upstream musl libc.
