Since 'start_of_text' is not used by Cygwin build, shouldn't 'ecrt0.c'
be completely unnecessary?

That's exactly the reason for this discussion: getting rid of ecrt0.c.

Hmm... bootstrapping rev. 100753 *without* patches (i.e. using
ecrt0.c), shows that:

$ grep -R start_of_text emacs/inst/usr/local/emacs

is *empty* (emacs/inst/usr/local/emacs is the Emacs installation
directory). This would mean that the function 'start_of_text' is not
compiled any more in the Cygwin build. Right?

Sure, before yesterday it was just sitting there unused.

What about 'ecrt0.c'? It seems that it happens the same for it.

For completeness, the bootstrap (rev. 100755) I did applying *only* this patch:
