You do not seem to understand what Cygwin is and what it isn't.
Cygwin is a dll that contains a C library. So, since you seek
to bypass the C library, you will by that action also, by
design, bypass Cygwin completely. There is no way to only use
the "backend" of Cygwin (whatever that would be as it doesn't
exist as such), you have to go through the C library to use the
Cygwin dll.
