[webkit-help] W7/Cygwin /dev/fs problems with WebCoreGenerated scripts ['fixed']

A 'solution' is to add the following command to 
'build-generated-files.sh' in both JavaScriptCoreGenerated and 
WebcoreGenerated projects:

mount -c /dev/fs

this converts the default /cygdrive/U path to /dev/fs/u, which then lets 
cat and friends work.

Is this some vagary of latest version of Cygwin 1.7.9-1?
