index-pack: Disable threading on cygwin

The Cygwin implementation of pread() is not thread-safe since, just
like the emulation provided by compat/pread.c, it uses a sequence of
seek-read-seek calls. In order to avoid failues due to thread-safety
issues, commit b038a61 disables threading when NO_PREAD is defined.
(ie when using the emulation code in compat/pread.c).

We introduce a new build variable, NO_THREAD_SAFE_PREAD, which allows
use to disable the threaded index-pack code on cygwin, in addition to
the above NO_PREAD case.
