as you can guess from name, it workarounds some xorg bug. So when xorg is
without that bug AND most of people will have the right version, then it'll get
merged in, AFAIK.

This bug won't be solved in any other way than xinput2 support, because it's
useless. Xinput2 is proper solution for this bug and should work for every
application. So let's wait till Xinput2 is widespread and then we'll get this
fixed without patching wine.

Personally, i don't care much about patching - i use wine from git, and it
automatically generates packages for my distro, and properly patches.
