The patch doesn't change any behavior though: in current Cygwin if the
thing we're exec()ing returns a Win32 exit code of C0000135 (or
whatever) then we retry creating it 5 times. With the patch, we still
retry starting it 5 times but after the last one fails we recognise the
situation and print a message.
