The staged patchset adds thunk wrappers for ntdll functions, but to be compatible with Windows, they have to contain absolute addresses. This requires text relocations, which are not allowed by default on OSX. Since this issue was discovered shortly before the last release, disabling the patchset on OSX was easier than the necessary changes, but I'm working on a solution. Unless we hit some impossible to solve problems Wine Staging 1.7.54 will make the Steam fix also available on OSX. ;)
