MSYS2 is known for not supplying statfs/statvfs, which are practically
meaningless in a Windows-based environment, see e.g. [1]

Yet, both calls do not seem to be critical for MPI internals, thus one can
potentially develop patches to turn them into an optional feature within

If you are looking for quick OpenMPI solution on Windows, you may want to
look into Ubuntu terminal for Windows, where OpenMPI works perfectly.
