That is possible ...
As on Linux, the denormal-operand exception will always be masked after this
change ... (both in the default env. and in the "nomask" env.)
Meaning that, after this change, this exception can * no longer * be enabled
through the API of fenv.h
The modication would require changing:
winsup/cygwin/fenv.cc (_feinitialise() )
/usr/include/fenv.h (which is a copy of the above, I am guessing ?????)
In _feinitialise() this line must be changed:
434 mxcsr = FE_ALL_EXCEPT << FE_SSE_EXCEPT_MASK_SHIFT;
434 mxcsr = 0x3f << FE_SSE_EXCEPT_MASK_SHIFT;
