    Cygwin: Allow to set SO_PEERCRED zero (v2)
    The existing code errors as EINVAL any attempt to set a value for
    SO_PEERCRED via setsockopt() on an AF_UNIX/AF_LOCAL socket.  But to
    enable the workaround set_no_getpeereid behavior for Python one has
    to be able to set SO_PEERCRED to zero.  Ergo, this patch.  Python has
    no way to specify a NULL pointer for 'optval'.
    This v2 of patch allows the original working (i.e., allow NULL,0 for
    optval,optlen to mean turn off SO_PEERCRED) in addition to the new
    working described above.  The sense of the 'if' stmt is reversed for
