Here a more generic version which allows to specifiy windows system dirs by /etc/default/grub:GRUB_WINDOWS_DIRS.

Defaults to current SYSTEMDRIVE on Cygwin, and nothing on other OS.

        * conf/common.rmk: Add `10_windows' to `update-grub_SCRIPTS'.
        * util/grub.d/ New file.
        * util/ Add export of GRUB_WINDOWS_DIRS.

Why is this needed?  Can't we do something like 'grub-probe -t device c:/ntldr'
or so?

It is not needed for standard installations with ntldr on SYSTEMDRIVE (C:).
The ability to specify GRUB_WINDOWS_DIRS is added to support non-standard installations.
It also allows to use 10_windows on other OS if os-prober is not available.
