Then you have to build your own Cygwin DLL for testing.

The call to NtQueryVolumeInformationFile() in
fhandler_disk_file::fstatvfs() in (line 737ff),
fails with STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER.  This is a NetApp bug, but we may
be able to workaround it.

Given the lack of complex parameters, and given that, as you claim, this
occurs on 32 and 64 bit, I can see only one (well, two) potential
culprits, the NtOpenFile calls at lines 751 and 761.  One of the
following is the problem:

- The Netapp drive chokes on the FILE_OPEN_FOR_BACKUP_INTENT open flags.
  This is *very* unlikely, though, given that it's a required flag to
  open a directory.  Nevertheless, try to set it to 0 just for testing.

- Or, Netapp expects the call to run in SYNCHRONIZE mode.  To test that,
  set the open mode to READ_CONTROL|SYNCHRONIZE.  This also requires to
  set the open flags to

- Or, the READ_CONTROL open mode isn't enough for Netapp.  Try to open
  the file with GENERIC_READ for a start, and then, if that works, try
  to reduce the flags to something containing READ_CONTROL,
  FILE_OPEN_DATA, and FILE_OPEN_ATTRIBUTES.  Try in combination with
