    Cygwin: posix timers: fix uninitialized variable
    The variable returning the overrun count from the tracker object after
    disarming the overrun counter was not correctly initialized.  For some
    reason this has only been noticed by gcc-9.2.0, not by the formerly used
    This problem should not have had any runtime impact.  The method
    timer_tracker::disarm_overrun_event is supposed to be called in
    lock-step with timer_tracker::arm_overrun_event, which in turn
    results in the variable getting a valid value.
