Related: Should we have separate settings for 1.5 and 1.7 for several

     trustable filemode   (1.7 has, 1.5 does not)
     MMAP/Pread (1.7 pread is thread safe, 1.5 I dont think was, MMAP
utility is convolved in this)
     regex - 1.7 is broken, per Ramsay 1.5 works

If you think its worth it, I'll create a patch series with the above
and justifications for the different settings that I know.
I'd say that would be a sensible thing to do, given that the
alternative seems to be "let's drop 1.5 support right now, because
otherwise we cannot run Git on 1.7".

Ok, the following sequence builds up options for Cygwin 1.7 while leaving Cygwin 1.5 as-is. This series should replace

dad577f Cygwin has trustable filemode
174bb98 Use compat/regex on Cygwin

After merging the following into current pu, all tests that run by default pass on Cygwin 1.7, i.e.
    prove -j 8 t[0-9]*.sh
reports "All tests successful."
I've *never* had this happen on Cygwin before.
