[1.7] Updated: cygwin-1.7.0-65

Hi folks,

I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-65.

Changes in relation to 1.7.0-64:

- New Linux-compatible entry points get_nprocs, get_nprocs_conf,
  get_avphys_pages, and get_phys_pages.  New accompanying header file

- Improve speed of mbrtowc and wcrtomb functions.


- Revert incorrect change in -64 not to create ESC sequences for ALT-key
  keypresses if key translates into a multibyte sequence.  Xterm is doing
  exactly the same, in fact.

- Make /dev/kmsg implementation installation path dependent.  This was
  missing in the big patch to run multiple Cygwin installations in
  parallel without interferring, and which has gone into -63.

- Getfacl now returns a return value of 2 if some files from the command
  line were inaccessible.

- Improve error handling in setenv and unsetenv.

- Re-integrate a big chunk of code from Cygwin 1.5, which makes socket
  duplication and inheritance to child processes more bullet-proof in
  case the machine has additional socket service providers installed.
  Intrusion detection, 3G communication speedup tools, you name it.
  Please note that this does not help in all BLODA cases, but it should
  at least help to drop drop a couple of the suspects from this list:

- Fix a few minor problems in the extended attribute API.  Add a bit of

- Disable a piece of code in the file locking API which could result in
  incorrect results in calls to fcntl (fd, F_GETLK, ...).

- Fix yet another build problem which results in cygserver being linked
  against /bin/cygstdc++-6.dll accidentally.

- Add missing declarations of logb and logbf to math.h.


- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-65?

  A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-11-19 10:07"

Have fun,
