Git for Windows' Git Bash runs in MinTTY by default, which does not have
a Win32 Console instance, but uses MSYS2 pseudo terminals instead.

This is a problem, as Git for Windows does not want to use the MSYS2
emulation layer for Git itself, and therefore has no direct way to
interact with that pseudo terminal.

As a workaround, use the `stty` utility (which is included in Git for
Windows, and which *is* an MSYS2 program, so it knows how to deal with
the pseudo terminal).

Note: If Git runs in a regular CMD or PowerShell window, there *is* a
regular Win32 Console to work with. This is not a problem for the MSYS2
`stty`: it copes with this scenario just fine.

Also note that we introduce support for more bits than would be
necessary for a mere `disable_echo()` here, in preparation for the
upcoming `enable_non_canonical()` function.
