The attached patch implements the user request at
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2009-12/msg00837.html, allowing the
backspace keycode to be changed from the default ^? to whatever they
like using 'stty erase'.

        * fhandler_console.cc (handler_console::read): Use the tty's
        VERASE character as the backspace keycode.

I hereby declare this patch trivial and public domain.
