Shall we change that?  A patch would be nice. ;)

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

Objections? Anyone?

The modication would require changing:

winsup/cygwin/fenv.cc (_feinitialise() )
winsup/cygwin/include/fenv.h (FE_ALL_EXCEPT)

GRRR! The file encoding of fenv.h is "cp1252" because of 2 characters in this

     Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manuals:

... part of a comment at the beginning of the file.

(the registered trademark sign (u00ae) is encoded as 0xae (cp1252), while it
 would be: 0xc2 0xae, in utf-8,
the right single quotation mark (u2019) is encoded as 0x92 (cp1252), but in
 utf-8 it would be: 0xc2 0x80 0x98)

s/ 0xc2 0x80 0x98 / 0xe2 0x80 0x99 /
