Btw., your change to shared.cc does not work correctly.  You can't defer
the initialization of the installation_root stuff after the call to
open_shared, since the open_shared call already requires that
installation_root/installation_key has been filled out.  The Cygwin
subdirectory in the native NT namespace depends on it.
