[PATCH 0/1] mingw: handle absolute paths in expand_user_path()

While this patch has been "in production" in Git for Windows for a good
while, this patch series is half meant as a request for comments.

The reason is this: something like this (make paths specified e.g. via 
http.sslCAInfo relative to the runtime prefix) is potentially useful also in
the non-Windows context, as long as Git was built with the runtime prefix

The main problem with non-Windows platforms is that paths starting with a
single slash are unambiguously absolute, whereas we can say with certainty
that they are not absolute Windows paths.

So maybe someone on this list has a clever idea how we could specify paths
(unambiguously, even on non-Windows platforms) that Git should interpret as
relative to the runtime prefix?
