Perhaps you can infer how cvs works here.  It doesn't store the fact
that you only wanted the "winsup" module anywhere on your local drive.
When you check out the winsup module, you get a bunch of directories and
files.  cvs loses state after that.  If you type 'cvs update -d' then
cvs will notice that you apparently have a bunch of directories missing
and fill in the missing pieces.  If you type 'cvs update' then cvs, as
documented, won't do anything with directories.

Something like 'cvs update -l; cvs update -d */.', or some variation
thereof may do what you want.  Or you could just do a 'cvs co winsup' to
make sure that you get any new directory -- assuming that someone
remembers to update the winsup module description appropriately.
