Looks good to me.

Indeed, that is only in Git for Windows' code base yet, AFAICT.

For the record: I am currently holding off from contributing those patches
(I am talking about the patch series to make Git compile with MS Visual
C++ on the command line, followed by the patch series to generate project
definitions ready for use with MS Visual Studio) because of the feature
freeze. I had hoped to be able to contribute them sooner, but it took Jeff
Hostetler and myself a combined gargantuan effort to reorder and
disentangle Git for Windows' branch thicket so that those patches apply
cleanly on top of git.git's `master`.

Happily, almost all of the prerequisites made it upstream (e.g. the
nanosecond support for Windows, the patches to require Windows Vista or
later, the patch to use CreateHardLink() directly, etc). By my counting,
only two, relatively small patch series are left, and both are already
under discussion (but on hold, due to the code freeze).

For interested parties: the current shape of the `visual-studio` patch
series can be seen here:
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/compare/581eb5441089%5E...581eb5441089%5E2
and the current shape of the `msvc` patch series can be seen here:
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/compare/e9e7bd2a2485%5E...e9e7bd2a2485%5E2

Ciao,
