Just got another report to MSYS2 of this behavior, this time from a Gitlab
CI runner that is running as a service and trying to pipe output from
Microsoft cl.exe while running configure.  This user reports that 3.3.4
with your "[PATCH v2] Cygwin: pipe: Avoid deadlock for non-cygwin writer."
applied to it does not solve the problem.
