Re: PATCH: separate watch/log functionality out into a module

With this patch (either with or without the one in worker/49544⁩),
build fails on Cygwin as follows:

gcc -c ...(snip)...  -o watch..o watch.c
In file included from ../../Src/zsh.mdh:16,
                 from watch.mdh:15,
                 from watch.c:30:
../../Src/zsh.h:2097:34: error: initializer element is not constant
 2097 |     { name, flags, (void *) var, (void *) gsu, \
      |                                  ^
watch.c:643:5: note: in expansion of macro ‘PARAMDEF’
  643 |     PARAMDEF("WATCH", PM_SCALAR|PM_SPECIAL, &watch, &colonarr_gsu),
      |     ^~~~~~~~

(and the same error for &vararray_gsu)

On Cygwin, params.o (in which colonarr_gsu is defined) is not included in
the main zsh.exe but in libzsh.dll (I don't know why).
This means &colonarr_gsu is not a build-time constant and can't be used
for the initialization of the static variable partab[].
A simple workaround is to set the .gsu in the setup_() function.
This takes virtually no time to execute and I think we don't need to use
#ifdef __CYGWIN__.
