Or, if doing this in do_lstat() is too expensive for normal stat()
operations (which is likely), then a simple #ifdef might be easier to
read; or abstract it into a get_device() function which Windows/MinGW
can override, doing buf.st_dev = toupper(real_path(...)), thus also
making the code easier to understand.
