Dunno what you're up to but I'm running syslog from inetutils just
fine.  Cygwin tries to syslog on /dev/log if it's available (it's
usually created by syslog) and there's also a /dev/kmsg pipe which
would be utilized for kernel messages ... *if* Cygwin would have
anything like kernel messages.  Nothing gets sent to /dev/kmsg so far.
Right now it's's only a proof of concept for using mailslots.
