We can't control the case mismatches in the Windows SDK but we can control them 
in LLVM. Why should we consistently use the wrong case? The difference between 
LLVM and the Windows SDK using the wrong case is, that we can maintain a vfs 
overlay file for the Windows SDK only and be fairly certain that it wont change 
that frequently.
