Some copy-protection systems, and any other programs that do dlls patching
using IPC. They assume that some system dlls (namely ntdll, kernel32, and
user32) are always loaded to the same address for every system process.
It was initially added to support SafeDisk copy protection. Now it's hard to
tell what other programs might depend on this.
If you do not have prelink, Wine will not be able to load these DLLs at the
same address and some programs will fail in mysterious ways.
