   21 Linking Exception:
   22 
   23   As a special exception, the copyright holders of the Cygwin library
   24   grant you additional permission to link libcygwin.a, crt0.o, and
   25   gcrt0.o with independent modules to produce an executable, and to
   26   convey the resulting executable under terms of your choice, without
   27   any need to comply with the conditions of LGPLv3 section 4. An
   28   independent module is a module which is not itself based on the
   29   Cygwin library.
