this is a minor upgrade for Coco to patch cleanly against
Lua 5.1.1 and to fix some Windows Fibers issues.

What is Coco?

Coco is a small extension to get True C Coroutine semantics for
Lua 5.1. True C coroutine semantics mean you can yield from a
coroutine across a C call boundary and resume back to it (e.g.
across pcall(), metamethods, iterators or callbacks).

Coco is free software, released under the same license as Lua.

Changes for Coco 1.1.1 -- 2006-06-20

* Upgraded to patch cleanly into Lua 5.1.1.
* C stacks are deallocated early: when a coroutine ends, and not
  when the coroutine object is collected. This mainly benefits
  Windows Fibers.
* Windows threads get the required Fiber context when resuming
  a coroutine and not just on creation.
