The SHM interface in gpsd is Unix-specifc (shmget/shmat).
Maybe it is better to investigate what SHM interfaces Windows supports
and find if one of them is compatible with something available on
Linux/Unix, and then use that as the SHM for the new improved driver.

That would make the porting between Unix and Windows easier.
