[Lldb-commits] MinGW compilation support

Yes sure that's what I was planning to do for GetOSXEpoch (using #ifdef for
now, it doesn't need to move into Host right away IMHO).
It should be easy enough to do with Win32 API, and I was planning to do it
shortly after in another patch, this one focusing mainly on getting
everything to at least compile
(so I don't spend too much time rebasing this big one, and I can focus on
such smaller tasks in individual patches right after, easier to
review/integrate individually -- actually there are many things that I
improved in otehr patches after actually trying to use LLDB on windows).
Do you want me to do an implementation for this patch or you think it is OK
for a later patch?
I agree it might be dangerous to not do an implementation right now since
it returns 0 instead of a proper error/assert, so maybe it would be better
to implement something for the first version (it didn't seem to be used in
important part of the code though)
