You mean, tests/test-stdint.c compiles fine but gives a failure during
"make check"? Then a comment near the top of this file is appropriate,
saying "Note: This test fails on some versions of cygwin. It is fixed in
cygwin 1.7.0." So that other people don't waste their time debugging a
known test failure.

OTOH, if it causes tests/test-stdint.c to not compile, then it is best
to mark the part of the test that doesn't work with "#ifndef __CYGWIN__".
So that the other tests can still be executed without manual intervention.
