Updated: Cygwin 1.7.21

Hi Cygwin friends and users,

I just released Cygwin 1.7.21.   This is mostly a bugfix release.

What's new:

- New API: rawmemchr.

- Make cygcheck report when scanned DLLs are symlinks or are not meant
  for the current architecture (x86 vs. x86_64).

Bug fixes:

- Fix long-standing problem which allows to access files via ".." using an
  invalid POSIX path, for instance, `cd nonexistant/../existing_dir".

- Fix EFAULT when reading large clipboard.

- Fix creation of relative native symlinks.

- Update profiling code to latest from Mingw-w64.  Allows profiling on x86_64
  now and fixes

- Fix character comparisons in certain scenarios within the functions glob(3),
  fnmatch(3), and regcomp(3).  All Unicode chars beyond U+0100 are affected.

- Fix problem with pty closing which manifested as a screen issue:

Have fun,
