Looks like this could be used for connection multiplexing on Cygwin.
Since it doesn't seem to be documented I am not sure how one can test
it, but ...

with


Host *
ControlMaster auto
ControlPath ~/.ssh/master-%r@%h:%p

latte ~ > ssh i10z.com
mux_client_request_session: read from master failed: Connection reset by peer
Failed to connect to new control master

--> Fails as expected, lets retry.

latte ~ > ssh i10z.com
mux_client_request_session: read from master failed: Connection reset by peer
ControlSocket /home/ismail/.ssh/master-ismail@xxxxxxxx:22 already
exists, disabling multiplexing

--> Voila, it used the existing connection!

And after that it indeed seems to be using the old connection as long
as you specify -O proxy option.

Something to play with I guess.
