Thanks for the patch.  Unfortunately it's missing a ChangeLog entry and
it didn't work OOTB since it was missing curly braces, but I took the
freedom to fix it up.  The change to fhandler_socket::recvfrom was not
necessary since flags is masked at the start of the function.  However,
maybe it comes handy to keep the original flags value at one point, so
I removed this masking at the function start.

Please note that I can take this patch only because it's relatively
small.  If you would like to send bigger patches or extensions to the
Cygwin functionality at one point, you'll have to sign a copyright
assignment form and send it to Red Hat.  Please read
http://cygwin.com/contrib.html for more details about contributing.

Other than that, patch applied with changes.

Thanks again,
