Only for win64?  This is curious.  As headers are shared between 32-bit and 64-bit, and most part of Win32 API too.

Well, IMO the real issue here is to include windows.h instead of sys/time.h.  Also a lot of changes done in second patch are strongly related to this include.
Sadly MS decided to pollute namespace with commonly used names in their platform-headers.  So in the past we tried to avoid to include things like windows.h in bfd and related headers, and to isolate files, which actually need to include it (eg windows-unicode stuff in binutils/).  To include it now leads to a general architectural change of binutils' bfd (and other parts).  I am not in general oppose to it, but I am wondering if this is really wanted/needed.
