No confusion as such.  The underlying Windows function returns a NT
status code, which is converted to a Win32 error code by a Windows
function, and that Win32 error code is converted to a POSIX errno by
Cygwin.  There are much more NT status codes than Win32 error codes, and
there are much more Win32 error codses than POSIX errno values, so the
mapping is inevitably unsatisfying.
