[alsa-devel] alsa-lib and musl

Hi Developers,

I am trying to cross-compile alsa-lib with a musl¹ libc based
toolchain. Unfortunately src/compat/hsearch_r.c is failing to
compile, because of some glibc specific macros (like _P) normally
defined in sys/cdefs.h. After grepping through the code I can not
find any consumer for any functions implemented in hsearch_r.c.
When I just comment out the code, everything compiles fine.

Seems that that usage of hsearch functions was removed in the code 
long time ago.

    Removed old mixer API functions.
    Added simple control layer (experimental).

Can it just be removed?

thanks for any advice or comment.

best regards
