bug#49496: 28.0.50; process-tests/fd-setsize-no-crash/make-network-process hangs on Cygwin

The hang can actually be triggered by evaluating the following, extracted from
the test in the subject:
(setq socket-name "/tmp/socktest/socket")
(make-network-process :name "server"
(make-network-process :name "client"
The reason for the hang is that Cygwin does a blocking handshake in
accept/connect to exchange credentials. This can hang in certain situations in
which connect is called before a listening socket is ready to accept connections.
It is possible to work around this problem by disabling the credential exchange
as in the following patch:
diff --git a/src/process.c b/src/process.c
index b8c3e4ecfb..01548c8ab5 100644
@@ -3355,6 +3355,12 @@ connect_network_socket (Lisp_Object proc, Lisp_Object
xerrno = EMFILE;
+ /* Avoid possible hang in connect/accept. */
+ if (family == AF_LOCAL && p->socktype == SOCK_STREAM
+ && setsockopt (s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_PEERCRED, 0, 0) < 0)
+ report_file_error ("Cannot disable credential exchange", Qnil);
if (p->is_non_blocking_client && ! (SOCK_NONBLOCK && socket_to_use < 0))
But this seems too drastic just to fix a potential problem that doesn't seem to
occur in practice, but only in the contrived situation of
process-tests/fd-setsize-no-crash/make-network-process. So my preference is to
simply skip that test on Cygwin.
