In my modifying Cygwin source for MSYS I began having issues with malloc
and the offending pieces being within this source.  I noticed that the
HAVE_MMAP macro was set to 0 by default instead of 1 by default as
Dave's documentation says that it does.  Modifying the macro value to 1
caused all of the problems I was experiencing to disappear.

Do other Cygwin developers see benefit for a patch to newlib?

Should I create a newlib patch regardless of the benefit to Cygwin?
