Steps to Reproduce:

The patch looks fine. Did you submit it to upstream ?

Submitted the patch as an attachment to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50145 . Natanael Copa (who used to be on gentoo-embedded list before starting his Alpine distribution) hit the problem in early 2013 and sent a patch, but the bug is assigned to someone not reading emails from Bugzilla. What a shame.
Looks like this would also be needed for musl support. http://lists.openembedded.org/pipermail/openembedded-devel/2016-January/105613.html
