Quite a lot I suspect.  win32-nat.c is only designed to work on Cygwin.
Someone who was interested in native, non-Cygwin-based debugging would
have to work on it, and keep the changes clean enough to not overly
complicate the Cygwin support (per our last discussion on this
subject).  It would probably be at least a few weeks work.
