No problem. I'll try to add comments throughout, but I'm not sure they
will be all that helpful in the Kai-derived parts.  I'll also update to
use the proposed cygwin_internal calls instead of cygwin_*_process.

Yeah, that's why I was trying to get this done now: it'd be nice to say
that 1.7 supports the -v2 relocs.

BUT

'just one more thing'-itis will kill us (is already killing us), so I
won't be upset if Corinna wants to postpone 'til 1.7.2.

Ok, but first I need to learn Portuguese, German, Italian, Arabic,
Pashtu, Swahili, and Cantonese.  Afterwards, I'll get right on that.
