The dates changing shouldn't be a big deal ... but the start of the memory
disk being 512 bytes different could be a big deal.

Like I said, trying out the Linux-built ramdisk.fs image on Cygwin should
be an easy way to diagnose the problem.  If the Linux-built ramdisk.fs
still doesn't work with the Cygwin build, then I'd look at mdsetimage to
see if that is the problem (mdsetimage is the program that stores the
filesystem image into the kernel binary).
