libsigsegv-2.6+ vs 2.7 on cygwin

Can you please update your git repo at git://
to latest libsigsegv-2.7 so that I can roll a 2.7+
Or should I rather ignore 2.7 totally? I see no cygwin relevant
changes in 2.7 at all.
Bruno did not include your cygwin fixes for the SEH chain corruption into 2.7.

Can we please have eric's cygwin fixes in a next update somewhen?

I've promoted the experimental libsigsegv 2.6+-1 to current.
I need it for the upcoming clisp release, though I got no feedback yet
upstream if Eric' fixes will be eventually in the next release 2.7.

Eric Blake fixed the SEH chain corruption in libsigsegv for 2.6+.
The DLL revision is bumped from 0 to 1, so you can now change your
requires to libsigsegv1.
libsigsegv0 contains the old sources.

See for the problems fixed.

It's a small library for handling page faults in user mode.
A page fault occurs when a program tries to access to a region of memory
(heap or stack) that is currently not available.
It is mainly required for clisp for generational garbage collection,
m4 also uses for stack overflow protection.
