No, it seems to be simply compiling with cpyext the "win32api" module.  As we
are low on people with Windows machines, we can't test all the Windows-only
extension modules, even though I agree that "win32api" seems central.  I don't
know it well enough to know what the best path forward would be: either hack it
to not call these three functions; or add support for the three functions in
pypy/module/cpyext/, either as stubs or as a real implementation; or reimplement
win32api or a part of it by rewriting it as a cffi module (which looks like a
big job, even if it also looks like all APIs should be very easy to map).
