The current AF_UNIX address family of Windows10 doesn't support datagram, adding this flag may break some cross-platform code:

So I'm -1 on adding AF_UNIX personally.

I thought a compromise proposal:
- if (building SDK >= 1804 and run-time Windows >= 1804), add a undocumented flag _WIN_AF_UNIX, its value is equal to AF_UNIX.
- only use _WIN_AF_UNIX in stdlib, this is a black-box optimization.
- if someone really need high performance, he/she can uses this undocumented flag privately.

If one day Windows support full AF_UNIX, we can remove _WIN_AF_UNIX and add standard AF_UNIX.
