Summary0000444: static linking with musl crashes
DescriptionWhen using musl, static linking (i.e. --linkage static) causes the program to crash during initialisation of the GC. It has to do with passing the "-Wl,-defsym -Wl,_DYNAMIC=0" in the linking step. The program will not crash if _DYNAMIC is not defined.
TagsNo tags attached.

Without "-Wl,-defsym -Wl,_DYNAMIC=0", the binary DOES have a symbol _DYNAMIC but with a non-zero address:

bash-4.4$ nm -a hello | grep _DYNAMIC
00000000006dcdf8 d _DYNAMIC

bash-4.4$ ./hello
Hello, world
