Speeding up wineserver syncronization objects with shared memory

There are some other issues with wineserver that we should consider at
the same time as speed of mutexes. Things that come to mind are:

* VirtualAlloc/Virtual Protect on other processes memory
* inefficiency of async i/o and file i/o in general
* lack of interprocess messaging an difficulty of implementing it
efficiently with wineserver's architecture

The more i think about it, the more i believe that we do need to add
*something* into the kernel to improve the efficiency and flexability
of the wineserver.
