Is there any discussion we could read about that with the details of
the problem and how/why does the proposed patch solves it?

In general, I feel it's wrong to do this: Cygwin is a Posix platform,
so it should be using the Posix code, to be as compatible with other
Posix platforms as possible.  EMX is not a Posix platform, so using
its code will likely make the Cygwin Make deviate from Posix behavior
at times.
