the problem is due to xorg drivers assuming lazy-load semantics of the 
dynlinker. musl's dynlinker does not support that.
as a workaround, the modules can be loaded in the correct order via the 
file KEEP/20-modules.conf which is installed together with the 
xorg-server package into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-modules.conf

since the symbol you're missing starts with "fb" i would suspect that 
it's a symbol provided by the fb driver and thus intel needs to come 
after that.

     Load "int10"
     Load "vbe"
     Load "fb"
     Load "shadowfb"
     Load "shadow"
     Load "vgahw"
     Load "evdev"
     Load "fbdevhw"
+   Load "intel"

how did you tell xorg to use the intel driver ? in case you used a 
custom xorg.conf or something like that, you should probably remove it 
again and edit 20-modules.conf as just pointed out.

once you got it to work, please let use know the exact fix.
