I would prefer to get some additional thumbs up or down from other Windows
developers. The change *seems* innocent and simply enough to incorporate like
this, but it would be cool to get this tested and vetted by a few more first.

I wouldn't mind doing that for the sake of increased performance for those who
build curl with mingw.

I personally think using a private define would be preferable to do
documenting something as "weird" and compiler and system specific as that...
But then I don't develop on Windows nor do I build with mingw!
