Feedback requested for Mac OSX x86 stack patch

Thanks for the feedback... I look forward to windows apps not dieing a 
horrible death on Mac OSX

I was concerned about msvcrt not using the __stdcall/WINAPI for its 
functions (why is this?).

I am guessing the d3d8/d3d9 redefinitions should be removed?

Where can I find a list of (or affect the attribs of) windows callable 
I thought WINAPI and WINAPIV were sufficent -- If they are not more 
functions will need to be 'fixed'.
