  That's probably stdio.
  musl's stdio is scrupulously conformant whereas diet's stdio isn't,
so musl's is bigger. (It takes a lot of effort, and a lot of code, to
correctly implement that demented specification.)
  s6-mount uses getmntent() for /etc/fstab parsing, which pulls in the
FILE structure and likely a good portion of stdio.
