I've suggested earlier, simply to comment out the "QuadPart" members
of LARGE_INTEGER and ULARGE_INTEGER, until we have a new winnt.h.
I know, this works, because winsup doesn't use this QuadParts.
This would have two advantages: `chown()' will work again and you
would be able, to check in the security patch.
