Would not these two patches be relevant for the kernel headers too:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=da360299b6734135a5f66d7db458dcc7801c826a
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=6926e041a8920c8ec27e4e155efa760aa01551fd

which would not require patching ebtables or musl at all?
