core dump support for cygwin

I've added the winsup-specific stuff to the appropriate places.

Note, that you need to study ChangeLog entries a little more.  There
were a couple of problems with yours.  Specifically, your formatting was
non-standard, and, more importantly, you need to make changes to
individual ChangeLogs in the individual directories, not the one in the
winsup directory.

Also, I had to make some changes to the includes that you used and had
to coerce the return value of two GetProcAddress calls.

Anyway, the gdb changes really need to be sent to gdb-patches.  I
haven't looked at them to see if I have any comments, but if I do, the
discussion should take place in that mailing list.

Thanks for contributing this.  This will be a major addition to cygwin's
