Assuming that you were....

This is a revised patch, based on suggestion to use init_priority.
cygwin and mingw now share common code, using the ctor/dtor approach.

I have replaced the use of __attribute__((constructor)) with asm code
that adds the priority suffix to the section name, ie:

#define STRINGX(s) #s
#define XSTRING(s) STRINGX(s)

static void __attribute__((used))
__reg_frame_ctor (void)
    ".section\t.ctors." XSTRING (MAX_INIT_PRIORITY) ",\"w\"\n\t"
    ".align 4\n\t"

  __do_register_frame ();

and similar for the dtor.

Bootstrap (c,c++,objc, java) on mingw32 completed. Regtest in progress..
The initp1.C test and other tests in g++.dg/special are okay, so at
least that part works.
