musl: add patch to fix build on ARMv4 with new binutils
New binutils (since 2.27.51) cannot build musl-1.1.16 due to breakage in ARMv4 atomics asm. This patch from upstream musl repository is needed until musl-1.1.17 is released: Signed-off-by: Timothy Lee <> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <>

+Subject: fix build regression in arm atomics asm with new binutils
+binutils commit bada43421274615d0d5f629a61a60b7daa71bc15 tightened
+immediate fixup handling in gas in such a way that the final .arch of
+an object file must be compatible with the fixups used when the
+instruction was assembled; this in turn broke assembling of atomics.s,
+at least in thumb mode.
+it's not clear whether this should be considered a bug in gas, but
+.object_arch is preferable anyway for our purpose here of controlling
+the ISA level tag on the object file being produced, and it's the
+intended directive for use in object files with runtime code
+selection. research by Szabolcs Nagy confirmed that .object_arch is
+supported in all relevant versions of binutils and clang's integrated
+patch by Reiner Herrmann.
