The part of it that seems not to be a no-op is

#ifdef __CYGWIN__
        __hDllInstance_base = hInst;
#endif   /* __CYGWIN__ */

#ifdef __CYGWIN__
        _impure_ptr = __imp_reent_data;

and the whole thing is wrapped in


so presumably this is only needed for old Cygwin versions.  Can anyone
say how old "1001" is and whether we still ought to care about it?
