I'm not sure about the license of the code I used, IIRC it is some kind
of BSD license.  If this is true tou may take the source and contribute
it to newlib which is the C library used by the Cygwin project.

No, sorry I cannot help you with this, it is probably the best to start
another thread with this issue.
