Ok, that's good news, but I think we still need to answer two questions:

- Why does it crash in the first place rather than returning -ENOSYS?

- How does it actually work if you run an application built against
an old musl version on a kernel that tries to make this not work?
Do you just get a random time (uninitialized user space stack) and
work with that without checking the error code?
