I just stumbled across this is gcc 3.1 changelog:

2002-02-05  Alexandre Oliva  <aoliva AT redhat DOT com>

	* target.h (struct gcc_target): Added ms_bitfield_layout_p.
	* target-def.h (TARGET_MS_BITFIELD_LAYOUT_P): New.  Added to...
	* doc/tm.texi (TARGET_MS_BITFIELD_LAYOUT_P): Document.
	* tree.h (default_ms_bitfield_layout_p): Declare.
	(record_layout_info): Added prev_field.
	* tree.c (default_ms_bitfield_layout_p): New fn.
	* c-decl.c (finish_struct): Disregard EMPTY_FIELD_BOUNDARY and
	PCC_BITFIELD_TYPE_MATTERS for MS bit-field layout.
	* stor-layout.c: Include target.h.
	(start_record_layout): Initialize prev_field.
	(place_field): Handle MS bit-field layout, and disregard
	PCC_BITFIELD_TYPE_MATTERS in this case.  Update prev_field.
	* (stor-layout.o): Adjust dependencies.

Essentially, it provides a hook to do what Donn Terry's -fnative-struct 
patch did.  Has anyone tested this yet on cygwin or mingw?  AFAICT, the
only target to use a non-default version of this hook is sh (see

I haven't worked through how to implement.  I won't worry yet about
applying MS-bit-field layout on structure-by-structure basis (as in Donn's
patch), but that option needs to be kept open.
