It is already marked noreturn, in the declaration at the top of the
file.  I got an error when I marked the definition that way --
apparently gcc4 doesn't like that:

/usr/src/devel/kernel/src/winsup/cygwin/ error:
attributes are not allowed on a function-definition

I even tried to include the attribute on a (forward) declaration AND the
definition, but I got the same error.  The only thing that works is the
way I've already done it: apply the attribute to the (forward)
declaration, but not the definition.
