A CMake build using MinGW under CYGWIN fails in FileSystem.h. This is due to
the LLVM source code using Posix filesystem calls when LLVM_ON_UNIX is true.

Since MinGW can be used on both Cygwin/Unix, and Windows there is a conflict.
LLVM assumes that LLVM_ON_UNIX means that all posix filesystem calls are

Since Mingw doesn't support posix filesystem calls, the build breaks early in:


The information to identify this case is in CMakeCCompiler.cmake.

The final definition of the flags is in LLVMConfig.cmake

    set(LLVM_ON_UNIX 1)
    set(LLVM_ON_WIN32 0)

For MinGW, LLVM_ON_UNIX must be false and LLVM_ON_WIN32 must be true.

Linux or Windows is not quite correct for this case. A new HAVE_POSIX,
segragating the filesystem headers and api's would be more correct. This is a
bit more extensive involving source code, cmake build, and autoconf build.

Since mingw current builds with LLVM_ON_WIN32 set this way, the trivial change
should work.

The Host and Compiler information regarding Cygwin and MinGW are all present in
CMakeCCompiler.cmake for a starting point. 

The variables needed by the build are set in LLVMConfig.cmake.
