[5/5] usp10: remote todo_wine

I think that what James Hawkins had meant something like this:

Apply patch one, run the tests. If patch one fixed any of them, remove
the todo_wine's for those tests as a part of patch one. Otherwise,
leave them todo_wine.

Apply patch two, run the tests. If patch two fixed any of them, remove
the todo_wine's for those tests as a part of patch two. Etc.

This way, if someone builds wine at any step of applying the five
patches then the todo_wine's will reflect the current status of if the
functions work or not. I think this is important for regression

Of course, this will cause troubles if the patches are applied
out-of-order or the later patches are applied without the first ones -
but I think that's acceptable if you note that they should be
committed in order.
