It works now for me, too.  I have no idea wy it didn't work way back
when, but I don't see a reason not to include it now.

Just a questions:

You didn't add an include/sys/kd.h file.  On Linux this file in turn
includes linux/kd.h.  Is there a reason that you didn't create it?  The
cygwin/kd.h file contains only a miniscule number of definitions,
compared with the Linux version.  Do you think adding sys/kd.h would
result in problems for that reason?
