Don't you really want something similar to cygwin_crt0?  In the case
of a cygwin dll loaded via LoadLibrary all of the per_process information
is missing.  That would have to be provided via some other mechanism, possibly
via some code in which would detect if the dll was loaded via a
LoadLibrary or "normally".  In the LoadLibrary case, could actually
call dll_crt0 with its own per_process information.

Actually, maybe that's the way it should be anyway...
