The patches look different, so presumably you're seeing differences in

I'm curious why you're removing WINAPI and WSAAPI. I have no idea what
they do, as I'm not a win32 coder. Can you elaborate on this a bit?

Also, can you elaborate on the situation with S_ISDIR a bit more?

I don't really have an opinion either way, right now. You could send a
separate patch that adds them and then we'll be able to see exactly what
the impact would be.
