    get_pwd_cwd(): Do not trust st_dev/st_ino blindly

    dscho committed with gitster
    10c4c88 (Allow add_path() to add non-existent directories to the path,
    2008-07-21) introduced get_pwd_cwd() function in order to favor $PWD when
    getenv("PWD") and getcwd() refer to the same directory but are different
    strings (e.g. the former gives a nicer looking name via a symbolic link to
    an uglier looking automounted path). The function tried to determine if
    two directories are the same by running stat(2) on both and comparing
    ino/dev fields.
    Unfortunately, stat() does not fill any ino or dev fields in msysgit.  But
    there is a telltale: both ino and dev are 0 when they are not filled
    correctly, so let's be extra cautious.
    This happens to fix a bug in "get-receive-pack working_directory/" when
    the GIT_DIR would not be set correctly due to absolute_path(".")
    returning the wrong value.
