I didn't submit the patch to be applied to the cygwin sources, I submitted
it to illustrate the changes I had to make in order to get the
--enable-malloc-debugging option to compile and run. Since this option is
currently broken, I assume the cygwin maintainers will want to fix it.
BTW, 'random' was not the method I used to insert the #if's. The #if 0
comments out a data structure that should not have been declared in that
particular header file, since that exact same data structure was declared
in a standard header file.
