[PATCH v2 1/2] winevulkan: Allow vkGetDeviceProcAddr to load instance functions for broken games.

From: Roderick Colenbrander <thunderbird2k at gmail.com>

Doom and Wolfenstein II use vkGetDeviceProcAddr to load all their function pointers,
while they are supposed to use vkGetInstanceProcAddr for the instance ones.
For now we need to allow this broken behavior.

For time being, it's a reasonable workaround to run major Vulkan titles.
Depending on further developments, we may be able to drop the
workaround, or we should activate it only for the affected apps (based
on VkApplicationInfo).
