I have some patches and setup instructions lying around to make
libvirt compilable on Windows using MinGW/MSYS. I think I should clean
them up and get them upstream.

Regarding the uid_t issue: IIRC there is no numeric user ID on
Windows, so all uid_t related code is basically a noop on Windows.
What's missing here is the definition of the uid_t type, this is fixed
in my patches.

There are some other issues on Windows that I also fixed already. I
think I can get the fixes upstream this week.
