Rich Felker has asked me in private mail (please, please CC your replies
to address@hidden) to clarify the authorship of that patch.
I actually stated in the commit message

    Except for build system fixes this is essentially the same as


So, I wrote the build system fixes, and, strictly speaking, only the two
lines in src/unexelf.c which declare and initialize bss_sbrk_did_unexec
are directly from the original "Alpine Linux" patch above.

I can split the patch accordingly and ascribe only the latter part to
Rich Felker if this is preferred.  The original patch still helped me to

the whole patch to Rich Felker as it is just an expansion, as it were,
of his version.
