  - Update cygwin.c for new mingw-64 win32 api headers

  Make git work on newer cygwin.

  Will merge to 'next'.

(Sorry for late answer, I managed to test the original patch minutes before 
Peff merged it to pu)
(And thanks for maintaining git)

Is everybody using cygwin happy with this?

I am still on cygwin 1.5.22 and quite happy that this patch does
not (seem) to cause any problems. ;-P

I managed to compile on a fresh installed cygwin,
but failed to compile under 1.7.7, see below.
Is there a way we can achieve to compile git both under "old" and "new" cygwin 
1.7 ?
Or is this not worth the effort?

Did the cygwin project not bump an api version number somewhere?

Ramsay Jones
you can run uname -r to see the version number.

I myself haven't fully understood all the consequences,
somewhere between 1.7.7 and 1.7.17 the include files had been changed.

If this has consequences for using e.g. winsock2.dll, I want to know myself ;-)
