I got to this value by running the attached test patch applied after 
yours. You probably may
modify the for loop. I've chosen the increment because of time/usage.
You may try with 0xff or a lower value instead of 0xfff, but be warned 
running at 1 will take a
while to see a failed test.

You need a copy of native d3dx9_36.dll renamed to d3dx9_36_2.dll in the 
path. The test
should show the difference between native and wine's implementation. I 
haven't run the test
on windows, yet.

I haven't had the time to investigate this completely, yet. But probably 
there are a couple of values
produced by the patch which should give a hint to what bits are
