[PATCH 6/7] Cygwin: fix linkat(2) on sockets that are not socket files

If linkat(2) is called with AT_EMPTY_PATH on an AF_LOCAL or
AF_UNIX socket that is not a socket file, the current code calls
fhandler_disk_file::link in most cases.  The latter expects to be
operating on a disk file and uses the socket's io_handle, which
is not a file handle.

Fix this by calling fhandler_disk_file::link only if the
fhandler_socket object is a file (determined by testing
dev().isfs()).

Also fix the case of a socket file opened with O_PATH by setting
the fhandler_disk_file's io_handle.
