Bugzilla: Adding a 'patch' keyword

During a query I've stumbled on bug 5012 which happens to have a patch 
attached to it. Nine months ago it was suggested to the author to send 
this patch to wine-patches but either he didn't do it or it was not 

Now, I don't consider myself qualified to judge the patch and I have no 
particular interest in it. So I may not send it to wine-patches myself.

But it would be nice if there was an easy way to find bugs that have a 
patch, even, and maybe especially, if it is incorrect. This would make 
it easier for interested parties to survey what potential fixes are 
languishing in Bugzilla and push them to wine-devel or wine-patches.

And it would also give a starting point for someone interested in taking 
an existing patch that did not get committed to then update it, clean it 
up, and fix it to make it acceptable.

Does that make sense?

And for reference:
 * Missing NOVST timezone
   (in fact the timezone data seems wrong)

    Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
