Because 'sshd' is finicky about permissions, doing this may well
have removed your ability to run 'sshd' as a service under the
default service user 'cyg_server'.  With that would also come the
loss of the ability to login with public key authentication.  If
any of this is important to you, you need to restore the previous
state.
