Whatever we do with the testsuite directory I don't want parts of it
leaking into other directories.  If we are going to be moving
winsup/cygwin/testsuite to winsup/testsuite, that's fine.  I just
want it to be self-contained.  I don't think there is any reason
why this can't be the case.  Take a look at gdb's test suite.  It
has a 'lib' subdirectory with .c and .cc source files.
