This patch kind of hint that Varnish at Cygwin must suck pretty
badly performance wise ?  Is that because of the hardware you
run it on, or is it chronic ?

Where on Earth does the idea that TCP_NODELAY takes a bool argument
come from ?  Are you sure about this ?

Don't let the canonical decriptions mention about "The boolean option
TCP_NODELAY [...]" confuse you:  It still takes an int argument any
place I have ever seen it.

If the Cygwin crew made it take a bool, they're portability-mororns.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
