Cygwin does not provide a cross-platform development environment for 
generic device drivers.  It is possible to access communication ports
pretty generically though.  That doesn't sound like it will be enough
for your needs but I may be wrong.  Perhaps you just want to try to 
build your source under Cygwin and see where it flops or flies.  This
should provide you some concrete answers to your specific case.
