That's rarely the question.

The question is "Who's going to do the work to get it into Cygwin?"

The way to get something into Cygwin is to send a patch.

Hopefully, you'd implement both the errno and the code for detecting it,
whereever it exists.  Otherwise, as Corinna indicates, there is no
reason for the errno.  If some code is expecting it, without making it
conditional, you could easily make a case that THAT code is in error
since it's frightfully simple to check for this type of thing.
