[bug] elf.h incomplete

  Why is elf.h include incomplete in Cygwin?
  I am cross-compiling Linux kernel under Cygwin, and i had to patch 
modpost utility, adding missing R_xxx definitions for some reloc types.
Since kernel v3 i have to add some more definitions, as well as patch 
one more utility, recordmcount. So, amount of patching grows.
Can Cygwin's elf.h simply include all missing definitions instead? I 
know that ELF is not a home format for Cygwin, but many things being 
cross-build seem to rely on this include.

  Kind regards
