Ok, I'll give that a shot. Yeah that sounds like it would be less of a 
mess than adding these.

Yep - currently it's possible to build in PE mode for ARM if you build 
with a mingw compiler that has compiler-rt builtins, but if building in 
MSVC mode, you run into the fact that these are missing. I did a shot at 
importing the missing ones from compiler-rt into winecrt0, but one needs a 
pretty significant number of them:


Importing all of those from compiler-rt requires pulling in 27 new files 
from there - which is pretty unwieldy.
