Nicely done, thanks!

I think its important to reiterate that these patches were written several 
years apart, so there are some inconsistencies and back-and-forth changes (e.g. 
[5/5] fixes line break errors introduced in [3/5]). I'm OK with merging this as 
is, if there are no objections from the list, simply because it represents the 
battle tested history we have in Git for Windows.

The only real complaint I have is that I'm missing [6/5] "Win32: fix broken 
pipe detection" [1], which leaves this series in a slightly broken state 
(terminating the pager will not terminate the calling git process).

Nitpicking follows...

The dates are missing from the patches.
It would also have been nice to name (or link to) the patches you sqashed.

This introduces WriteConsoleW, so you could have squashed half of "Win32: fix 
segfault in WriteConsoleW when debugging in gdb" [2] (second  half in [5/5]).

I think this one includes "MSVC: fix winansi.c compile errors " [3] and 
"Unicode console: fix font warning on Vista and Win7" [4] (which is partly 
reverted by [5/5], which also fixes the formatting).

Note: this one was submitted seperately on May 29 and May 1 (can't find it in 
the gmane archive, though).
