git & sharing patches (was: SoC idea: improve dsound/winmm)

I don't know. I simply reverse all my patches before doing a git
update. It doesn't seem able to cope with the idea of non-committed
patches at all. I guess there is probably some way to do it ... maybe
just committing it to your tree will work.

For now I'd just apply it and see if it works. It's a useful data
point even if you don't keep it. We need to get a picture of what
problems are due to faults/data corruptions inside DirectSound/WinMM
itself and what are to do with scheduling.
