Thanks, I will push these to the emacs-25 branch soon.

Done now.


Note one gotcha with calling functions that might not be available at
run time: you cannot rely on a static function pointer to be NULL when
Emacs starts.  That's because when Emacs is dumped, the value of the
pointer from the system where Emacs is built is (or could be) recorded
in the dumped binary, and is non-NULL.  So you must explicitly zero it
out every Emacs startup; see the various globals_of_w32* functions
which do this for several such pointers.  I added a line to reset the
resetstkovflw pointer when Emacs starts.

Oh, of course.  Didn't think about that.  Thanks!

P.S. These patches all but exhaust your grace limit of contributed
code we can accept without your assigning copyright, so I hope your
legal paperwork is well under way, and we will be able to accept your
contributions soon.

My paperwork went into an extra round this week, as I had signed the first set of papers with a date in 2015. I expect the new set to reach FSF during the next week, if the mail is as quick this time as it was with the first set.
