I need to convert unix device nodes such as /dev/sda to Windows device
names within an application. cygpath returns devices such as:
> cygpath -w /dev/sda
That can be opened by both open(2) and CreateFile since it resides
in the global namespace, but cygwin_conv_path returns
\Device\Harddisk0\Partition0 which cygwin can't access.
Shouldn't cygpath and cygwin_conv_path returns the same paths?
