There is no Cygwin ABI, to the best of my knowledge, since Cygwin is a
library that sits on top of Windows, it follows the Windows ABI.  When
MinGW support was introduced, I didn't rename that.  I haven't found a
reason to split Cygwin|MinGW at this level.  I was avoiding rename-only
patches, in a rename-as-I-touch mode.
