Right you are. Per the big fat comment right above that code, this gross hack in
uclibc is unavoidable as applications tend to rely on that define.
So a better fix would be to check for various !GLIBC libs explicitly.

#ifdef __UCLIBC__

#elseif defined __MUSL__

...

Not pretty from app usage pov, but that seems to be the only sane way of doing it.
