1) Patches just to cygwin-patches, please.

2) Your ChangeLog is incorrect.

3) Please submit 1 (one) patch for everything rather than one patch per file.
   It just makes a reviewer's life harder if you submit multiple patches as
   attachments.  If your mailer allows you to submit patches inline without
   screwing up spacing that is preferred.

4) The diffs and ChangeLog should make it very obvious what is being changed.
   There is no need for more words at this point.  If this was your first
   submission asking for a change to Cygwin, then, sure, add a description.
   You've already beaten this subject to death, however, so there is no need
   for more justification.

None of the above is a show stopper except for 2.  As I predicted, your
ChangeLog is incorrect.  Go back to the web page that I keep mentioning
to see why.
