I added this to "compat/cygwin.h":

    #define has_dos_drive_prefix(path) \
      (isalpha(*(path)) && (path)[1] == ':' ? 2 : 0)
    int mingw_skip_dos_drive_prefix(char **path);
    #define skip_dos_drive_prefix mingw_skip_dos_drive_prefix

and added this to "compat/cygwin.c":

    int mingw_skip_dos_drive_prefix(char **path) {
      int ret = has_dos_drive_prefix(*path);
      *path += ret;
      return ret;
    }

but still, these dont work:

    git clone <source> C:/my/dir
    git clone <source> 'C:\my\dir'
