This patch fully supersedes my old diff105_cvs patch(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.programming.garbage-collection.boehmgc/2922) and has two changes:
- fix for Cygwin (now the patch works for it);
- contains a small patch implementing has_static_roots client filtering for Darwin (original implementation by Jim Hourihan <jimhourihan at earthlink.net>).

The patch is against the current CVS.

ChangeLog entries:

	* include/gc.h (GC_has_static_roots_func): New typedef (user filter
	* include/gc.h (GC_register_has_static_roots_callback): Use
	GC_has_static_roots_func type.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_has_static_roots,
	GC_register_has_static_roots_callback): Ditto.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_has_static_roots,
	GC_register_has_static_roots_callback): Define on all platforms.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_register_dynlib_callback,
	GC_register_dynamic_libraries, GC_init_dyld): Replace K&R-style
	functions definition with the ANSI C one.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_register_dynlib_callback): Use new local variable
	"callback" (initialized from GC_has_static_roots) to minimize data
	* dyn_load.c (GC_register_dynamic_libraries_dl_iterate_phdr,
	GC_cond_add_roots): Define as STATIC.
	* mark_rts.c (GC_remove_roots_inner): Ditto.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_dyld_image_add): Don't call GC_add_roots() for
	sections smaller than pointer size (just to avoid acquiring the
	lock unnecessarily).
        * dyn_load.c (GC_dyld_name_for_hdr): Define unconditionally (not
        only for DARWIN_DEBUG).
        * dyn_load.c (GC_dyld_image_add): Replace GC_add_roots() call with
        LOCK + GC_add_roots_inner() + UNLOCK.
        * dyn_load.c (GC_dyld_image_add): Call GC_has_static_roots() user
        callback (if set) holding the lock; if it returns 0 then don't call
        GC_add_roots_inner() for that region.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_register_has_static_roots_callback): Put
	"callback" value to GC_has_static_roots on all platforms.
	* dyn_load.c (GC_has_static_roots): Update the comments.
	* include/gc.h (GC_exclude_static_roots, GC_add_roots,
	GC_remove_roots, GC_register_has_static_roots_callback): Ditto.
	* include/private/gc_priv.h (struct roots): Ditto.
	* include/private/gc_priv.h (GC_remove_roots_inner): Move prototype
	to mark_rts.c and declare it as STATIC.
	* include/private/gc_priv.h (GC_exclude_static_roots_inner): New
	* dyn_load.c (GC_register_dynamic_libraries_dl_iterate_phdr): Use
	GC_exclude_static_roots_inner() instead of GC_exclude_static_roots.
	* misc.c (GC_init_inner): Ditto.
	* mark_rts.c (GC_exclude_static_roots_inner): New function (move
	all the code from GC_exclude_static_roots(); add the comment.
	* mark_rts.c (GC_add_roots_inner, GC_exclude_static_roots_inner):
	add alignment assertion for the lower bound; add assertion for the
	lower bound to be less than the upper one.
	* mark_rts.c (GC_add_roots_inner, GC_exclude_static_roots): Adjust
	the upper bound (round down to be of a pointer-aligned value);
	return in case of an empty range.
	* mark_rts.c (GC_exclude_static_roots): Acquire the lock and call
	* mark_rts.c (GC_remove_roots): Quickly check the bounds and return
	in case of a do-nothing case (before acquiring the lock).
