The attached patch adds a new CYGWIN environment variable, statquery. This
causes stat() to use set_query_open(TRUE) all the time, which
dramatically improves the performance on e.g. ls -lR operations or
For example, an ls -lR of the 'ntop' distribution goes from 34seconds
to 2seconds on my computer on a local filesystem. The actual change
is extremely trivial.
