Subject: [PATCH][gold] Implement --build-id=uuid on MinGW/MSYS2.


This patch adds support for the --build-id=uuid option on Windows
when gold is built in MSYS2 (MinGW) environment. This is similar
to the patch already applied to ld, see https://sourceware.org/ml/binutils/2016-07/msg00331.html

Without the patch, using this option leads to the following error:
gold.exe: error: --build-id=uuid failed: could not open /dev/urandom: No such file or directory

Best regards,
Igor Kudrin


        * layout.cc: Changes for MinGW32:
        Include windows.h and rpcdce.h.
        (Layout::create_build_id): Use UuidCreate() to generate uuid.
