The package 'autossh' is now available in the Cygwin distribution.

autossh is a program to start an instance of ssh and monitor it,
restarting
it as necessary should it die or stop passing traffic.  autossh monitors
connections by sending data through a loop of port forwardings, and
checking
that the data returns.  autossh backs off on the rate of connection
attempts
when experiencing rapid failures such as connection refused.  It
includes an
NT service mode, which works well as an NT system service under
cygrunsrv.

The autossh home page is http://www.harding.motd.ca/autossh/.
