heh, my patch (given below) took a different approach, but ....

Subject: [PATCH] compat/bswap.h: Fix redefinition of bswap_64 error on cygwin
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Since commit 452e0f20 ("compat: add endianness helpers", 24-10-2013)
the cygwin build has failed like so:

        * new build flags
        CC credential-store.o
    In file included from git-compat-util.h:305:0,
                     from cache.h:4,
                     from credential-store.c:1:
    compat/bswap.h:67:24: error: redefinition of 'bswap_64'
    In file included from /usr/include/endian.h:32:0,
                     from /usr/include/cygwin/types.h:21,
                     from /usr/include/sys/types.h:473,
                     from /usr/include/sys/unistd.h:9,
                     from /usr/include/unistd.h:4,
                     from git-compat-util.h:98,
                     from cache.h:4,
                     from credential-store.c:1:
    /usr/include/byteswap.h:31:1: note: previous definition of \
        ‘bswap_64’ was here
    Makefile:1985: recipe for target 'credential-store.o' failed
    make: *** [credential-store.o] Error 1

Note that cygwin has a defintion of 'bswap_64' in the <byteswap.h>
header file (which had already been included by git-compat-util.h).
In order to suppress the error, ensure that the <byteswap.h> header
is included, just like the __GNUC__/__GLIBC__ case, rather than
attempting to define a fallback implementation.
