Yes. And it also affects uclibc.

autoconf should test for getcontext/swapcontext/makecontext at link time as musl do have them declared (but not implemented). uclibc fails even before, while building as it does not even declare them.

For those cases, copy might work.

Bug #16455: coroutine ucontext uses deprecated POSIX getcontext/swapcontext/makecontext, absent in musl

Hello,

While building ruby 2.7.0 for mips with musl, it fails:


```

```

It seems that now ruby either uses native ASM code or ucontext for coroutine.
Both are unavailable in my crossbuild. It was building and running with 2.6.x:

```
configure:25935: checking native coroutine implementation for mips-linux-gnu                       configure:25976: result: no
```

With 2.7.0:

```
configure:26536: checking native coroutine implementation for mips-linux-gnu                       configure:26601: result: ucontext
```

I tried to disable it with --without-coroutine, --with-out-coroutine and --with-coroutine=no, but it is innocuous or try to use a "no" implementation.

It looks like this introduced the change https://github.com/ruby/ruby/commit/7291fef55c90b9ab6b3c22018b16972861b98c9d

And musl might never fix it:
