MS_types and addr_t name polution

I'm porting a small program to Cygwin. One of the typedefs
in the program is for a symbol named addr_t. Since this is
defined in /usr/include/sys/types.h, there is a redefinition
This (and a number of other symbols) are defined when __MS_types_
is defined, which, in turn, is defined whenever __CYGWIN__, _WIN32
or __MSDOS__ is defined.
I don't see any use of addr_t in /usr/include. Is there a reason
for defining addr_t and the other symbols?
