      Description

      musl libc is a popular lightweight alternative to glibc, and is the default in Yocto when "poky-tiny" distribution is used.

      Reported by a user that when he sets

      TCLIBC=“musl”
      

      in Yocto the mender client builds ok, but segfaults during runtime.

      Questions to answer:

      • Are we are aware of anything that would prevent one from using musl libc?
      • Should we add some testing using musl libc?

      If we do no support this, we probably should add a guard for this in meta-mender-core
