SAME_INODE macro defined in same-inode.h to be used by fts.c is as

#  define SAME_INODE(a, b)    \
    ((a).st_ino == (b).st_ino \
     && (a).st_dev == (b).st_dev)

However, MinGW always returns ST_INO = 0, which is POSIX imcompatible.
I see that it leads to the result that all directories is same.

So if we compare the file path instead of st_ino, the bug may be fixed.
