Why the positive feedback of a cross-couple comparator has a value of -1/gm? How to get there?

How can I get to the -1/gm value? Evaluating the small-signal equivalent circuit. But how? How this term comes to this value of -1/gm?

It can be found easily from its small signal equivalent circuit.( hint: cross coupled transistor oscillators )
