Let me put it this way:

* Theoretically, the RTEMS stdint.h/inttypes.h should be able to replace
Cygwin's stdint.h/inttypes.h, but I haven't checked the details nor do I
have any possibility to test (I don't have Windows nor do I use Cygwin,
except that I have and occasionally use Linux->Cygwin cross compilers).

* Technically, you probably should be able (untested) to override
generalized headers in newlib, by putting your headers into
(RTEMS uses a similar approach to override some general newlib headers
with customized headers).

Anyway, I think my RTEMS headers should also be applicable for Cygwin,
may-be some minor changes could be necessary.
