[Mono-dev] [PATCH] ShellExecuteEx ProcessId support for Windows

I intalled the latest cygwin available and it has no winternl.h (or any 
equivalent header). On the other hand it has the DDK headers bundled.

A possible solution is to use winternl.h with MS VC++ and the DDK headers 
with cygwin. What about that?

it's not acceptable to depend on the DDK headers. I wonder
why do you need them in the first place, since the required
defines are also provided by SDK's winternl.h.
