Excuse me for late answer :)
I think this can be left in MultiByteToWideChar, because this parameter only
affects output of this function, and there's no need to include it into
libs/wine/mbtowc.c. And one more thing is that we need to copy these three
lines into wine_cpsymbol_mbstowcs, wine_cp_mbstowcs and wine_utf8_mbstowcs.
So, I think, it'd be better to leave this code in MultiByteToWideChar.

P.S. What should I do for my patch to be added into WINE?
