Was it ?
25d90d1cb merged this commit:
1cadad6f6 (junio/tb/use-common-win32-pathfuncs-on-cygwin)

And, if I read that correctly,  1cadad6f6 does not change anything for MSVC.
And the problem with the missing/wrong path resolution was there before
1cadad6f6 and after 1cadad6f6.

From that point of view, the patch looks correct, but:

The other question:

In config.mak.uname  we need to add a line
for the Windows build.
In the git-for windows codebase I see
  COMPAT_OBJS +=compat/win32/path-utils

3 times:
For Cygwin, MINGW and Windows.

In git.git only for Cygwin and MINGW.

(I don't have MSVC, so I can't test)
