After creating this patch, I scanned the mailing list archive
and to my surprise I found

With this patch on top of attr's master branch, there's no
reason anymore to apply my Cygwin-specific patch from this
bug report.  The missing "-no-undefined" in libattr_la_LDFLAGS
to build a libattr DLL on Cygwin can easily be added via the
attr spec file creating the Cygwin distro package.

So, question is, is https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/acl-devel/2022-12/msg00020.html
about to be merged into attr master?

I'm the maintainer of Cygwin and, incidentally, also the
maintainer of the attr package in the Cygwin distro.

The attr package is part of Cygwin for quite some time, but
I never got around to submit the Cygwin-specific patches
upstream.  This bug report is to make good for this negligence.

The latest package in the Cygwin distro was attr-2.4.48.
When trying to build 2.5.1 for Cygwin, I found that
libattr/syscalls.c had changed in a way incompatible with
Cygwin.  Fortunately, the post-2.5.1 commit 7b3423dcbf67
fixed that for us.

The only change required now for Cygwin against git master is
a tweak to the Makefile expression building the libattr shared

Patch attached.  I hope it's ok to go upstream.
