At least some of these test failures are due to bugs or shortcomings in 
the Cygwin DLL. In an ideal world, I'd have the time and motivation to 
investigate them all, but here's a brief summary of the few I looked 
into ...

gdatetime: The _NL_CTYPE_OUTDIGITx_MB constants for nl_langinfo aren't 
defined (possibly because we don't have the required information, e.g. 
to produce Persian (as opposed to Arabic) digit characters in the 
fa_IR.utf-8 locale)

test-printf: newlib bug in handling positional format arguments


stream_rw-all: writes to a pipe until it's full, then ends up blocking 
when poll() still indicates it's writeable?

socket, unix-fd: try to send a fd over a socket, not currently implemented.

all the GDbus tests: these seem to get stuck during the handshake for an 
emulated unix-domain socket, somehow (It seems like all the dbus pacakge 
tests fail also, probably in the same way)
