this patch deals with only "two" problem. and this is "first" one.

static char * (*findenv_func)(const char *, int *) = (char *
(*)(const char *, int *)) getearly;
findenv_func is declared without __stdcall convention, and it is casting 
getearly having __stdcall convention with function type without 
__stdcall convention. to fix this problem, add __stdcall to findenv_func.

and this is "another" one.

this one deals with compilation error that gcc 4.6 complained. so i just 
copy & paste __attribute__((regparm (x))) from function declaration to 
function definition, so i must admit that this one was derived from 
original cygwin source code. that is, you can fix it without this patch.
