Sure, it has nothing to do with the kernel bug, except that it points to
a similar bug in the Wine kernel.

It depends if MSVC respects that ABI constraint or not. If it doesn't
and calls API functions with the flag set then yes, we'd have to clear
it everywhere. But if it does respect the ABI, then exception handling
is definitely a special case, and we have to clear the flag there, and
nowhere else.
