[patch] Fake display interface

Well, I did the patch mostly for personal use and dropped here as some
might find it useful.
If wine ever needs something like this, let's say for testing or for
some people wanting to fake display information, or do not want to use
XRandR or others for some reason, then it would at least need to
support multiple resolutions I guess.

ATM it only supports one, also it would be good to get rid of the
useless registry keys and just provide one with same syntax as the
environment variable one. Both should be easy to implement, I don't
know where wine gets/sends the color depth information, so it could be
faked too, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

But the patch should do the faking clean way, I guess. It's just
another interface like the XRandR selector and such.

As for, do we need it? I don't know. I need it :)
Correct way to add it? See above, but I highly suspect this ever
getting into mainline. It's not correct behavior and is quite niche
Does the patch look good? See above, registry keys could be cleaned
and multiple resolutions separated with eg ';' letter would be nice.

Also I'm not sure what is the take on defining environment variables.
