Patch for WineD3D to set Driver an Description

The registry key isn't bad. There should also come a key to override the pci id. By default we will use the table and I plan to fix that one properly soon. I talked about it to Henri and I thought that the name 'Display' is used in several places and that likely we need to get the driver name from winex11.drv (it would need to advertise itself as nv4_disp.dll) but Henri wasn't sure if the display driver name is the same as the name reported by d3d. I think they are.

So the default should be the table but users should always be able to override it as we can never get it correctly in all situations.
