Please always CC libstdc++ too when submitting patches for the C++ runtime.

I would suggest instead defining a macro in
config/os/mingw32/os_defines.h, a _GLIBCXX_NO_IOCTL or something and
checking that is not defined in showmanyc before checking FIONREAD etc.
And add a comment in that os_defines.h about the issue, maybe somebody
will want to work on something better for mingw32 and/or just add an
autoconf test for ioctl and clean up a bit of this mess.
