A couple of problems with this:

If I'm reading the patch correctly, it changes the behavior of cygwin so
that cygwin will output an error in the case of a failing OpenSemaphore.
That's not right.  The current behavior is correct.  The only time you
should see an error is when the process is creating a semaphore for
itself.  It should always be able to do that.

I'll clean up the code in getsem a little to make this more obvious.
