Just made another snapshot available for ftp.

Note that I have changed the names of the globals "s" and "u" to 
"cygwin_shared" and "user_data" respectively for code
readability/cleanliness reasons.  Since these entailed a lot of
changes to all the files, please make future patch submissions against
this or later snapshots if you can.  Thanks!

ChangeLog entries added since the last snapshot follows...

        * cygwin.din: export truncate call

Mon Apr 13 23:15:13 1998  Geoffrey Noer  <noer AT cygnus DOT com>

        Throughout Cygwin32, rename *u for per_process data *user_data.
        Likewise, rename *s for shared memory data *cygwin_shared.
        Respace where necessary.
        * minor respace
        * registry.h: ditto
        * ditto
        * (fhandler_base::read): don't redeclare int len
        * add FIXME, reformatting, remove extern "C" around
        whole file, add before exported functions
        (syslog): rename second cp char pointer cp2
        (setlogmask): comment out unused function
Mon Apr 13 17:55:43 1998  Geoffrey Noer  <noer AT cygnus DOT com>

        * (parse_options): add "ntea" setting to CYGWIN32
        env variable.  Setting determines whether NTEA is used or not.
        * Add allow_ntea global which is inited to FALSE.
        Now instead of immediately returning FALSE, make all
        functions check allow_ntea variable and use or not use NTEA
        based on its value.
        * (main): widen Win32_pid field by one to better handle
        Win 95 pids.

        patch from sos AT prospect DOT com DOT ru (Sergey Okhapkin):
        * (shared_info::initialize): increase default
        heap_chunk_size to 128 mb to get around the problem that
        Cygwin32 still can't cope with a split heap properly.
