[PATCH] docs: mention cygwin shortcoming in <sys/un.h>

From: Eric Blake
Subject: [PATCH] docs: mention cygwin shortcoming in <sys/un.h>
Date: Thu, 30 May 2013 11:29:13 -0600

I'm not quite ready to implement a replacement <sys/un.h> that
automatically works around this problem, since making the replacement
work for mingw seems much harder; so for now I'm just documenting
the issue I hit.

* doc/posix-headers/sys_un.texi (sys/un.h): Mention problem.
