We should behave the same way as Windows and also work as similar as
possible. Calling wined3d from user32 is not the right way. In the end
we likely have to move all the gpu detection stuff to winex11.drv and
somehow let wined3d retrieve the info from there. Other sources like
user32 (and perhaps registry keys) should also use this info.
