"Update cygwin.c for new mingw-64 win32 api headers"
Cygwin up to 1.7.16 uses some header file from the WINE project
Cygwin 1.7.17 uses some header file from the mingw-64 project
As the old cygwin (like 1.5) never used mingw,
the name V15_MINGW_HEADERS is confusing.

WINSOCK is certainly a part of the win32 api implementation, but it is is the entire win32api that changed, not just the tiny bit dealing with sockets. Basically, WINDOWS.h, and everything it includes, and all of the dlls it touches, and the .o files, changed. Calling it "OLD" is not helpful, what happens in the future with the next change? The only version info we really have is the dll version. We are switching between the win32 api implementation shipped with cygwin dll version 1.5.x and the one that is now current. And, the shift is not tied to any particular cygwin 1.7.x dll version either (there are no cross dependencies between the win32api implementation and any particular dll in the 1.7.x series, just a coincidence in time as to what packages got updated when). So my suggestion in the bike shedding category is to


/end of bike shedding.

If this is really worth a second patch, I'll be happy to send one :^)
