I've already had some success building musl using tinycc for my own kernel.
While this probably isn't applicable to your particular problem I still would 
like to note this down if anyone ever needs it.

This involves building musl with custom CFLAGS to add the tcc stdarg.h to the 
include path and deleting things that don't work.

Musl can compile almost everything of musl, except for some math (complex 
numbers) and some assembly (unimplemented instructions) and a few bits of c 
(__syscall4, __syscall5, __syscall6).
I've attached a patch for musl version 1.2.0, while this makes musl buildable 
using tinycc it won't actually work since the syscall implementations are 
This doesn't really matter for my own kernel since I provide my own 
implementation of the syscall interface.
I also haven't tested if musl still compiles with other compilers, e.g. gcc, 
using my patch.

It would be nice if someone could implement "proper" support for va_list 
(__builtin_va_start and friends, so no calls to an external library, etc..).

See also https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/tinycc-devel/2017-05/msg00042.html 
for more details.
