A lot of the work is already done:
http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=22871. There's a stub
dxdiag.exe already in wine, and last year some students from UCLA
coded a relatively functional dxdiag.exe. It's not yet in wine,

I don't think it would take a GSOC amount of work to get it cleaned up
and into wine, but I may be overestimating the quality of the code.
Regardless, I'm sure others have more to say.
