Ok.  In that case the final answer is that I'm not going to sacrifice
correct code to gcc bugs.  The attribute stuff used to be sufficient to
cause the functions to be kept.  At one point, aliasing the function
also kept the function around, if you want to try that.  I don't mind
hiding stuff in a macro.  I just don't want to have to comment every
should-be-static function in cygwin with a "I know it looks like it
should be static but it can't be really."
