musl (1.1.21-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Revert "Install symlink with dh_install instead of dh_link".
The upstream symlink was pointing to /usr/lib/${TRIPLE}/, which
is part of a different package (musl-dev).
* Add /lib/ld-musl-*.so.1 symlink to debian/not-installed, to tell
dh_missing that it is deliberately not installed.
