    Cygwin: fhandler_base::open: allow to reopen file from handle
    So far io_handle is NULL when calling fhandler_base::open to
    open or create a file.  Add a check for io_handle to allow
    priming the fhandler with a HANDLE value so we can reopen a
    file from a HANDLE on file systems supporting it.  This allows
    to open already deleted files for further action.  This will
    be used by open("/proc/PID/fd/DESCRIPTOR") scenarios.
