Yes, I've had this exported for awhile, but I was waiting until the
source stabilized before proposing a new batch of exports.

You're right, there are a few (atoll, llabs, lldiv, & wcsnlen come to
mind). In addition, there are some functions which could be made
relevant by aliasing their "__" in cygwin.din and adding an entry to the
header file. Two examples of this are __getdelim and __getline which,
AFAICT, work fine when aliased as getdelim & getline.
While we're on the subject, I was scanning newlib the other day and I
spotted two functions of interest in libc/unix -- `pread' & `pwrite'.
Unfortunately, we do not build in the unix dir, since most of our unistd
functions are provided inside the Cygwin tree. Would anyone object if I
submitted a patch to newlib which would allow Cygwin to build in that
dir? The plan would be to add:
to the other unix sourcefiles which provide functions we already have.
I'll submit a patch of what I have found so far. I'll do a more
thorough sweep later after I put the finishing touches on the resolver
code I've been working on. Of course, if someone beats me to it, all
