[ruby-core:104329]

Description

The following one-liner is the repro named thread-pipe-read-close.rb the aim of which is essentially the same as that of "IO#close raises an IOError with a clear message" test in spec/ruby/core/io/close_spec.rb.

r, w = IO.pipe; Thread.new{ r.read }; sleep 0.5; r.close

Run on Cygwin with Ruby 2.6 or later, this hangs up indefinitely consuming a full core. On the other hand, with Ruby 2.5.9p229 it works as expected.
