[PATCH resend 1/9] server: Add send_hardware_message flags for rawinput translation.

On the topic of how convey the raw/wnd input origin information.

Currently I use flags passed through __wine_send_input / 
send_hardware_message. Regardless of their name or meaning, I feel it 
may not be the rightest way to do it.

Instead, I'm thinking or decoupling the server hw_input_t type flags 
from the user32 INPUT structure type flags, and use some internal flags 
instead -that would be used to support HID rawinput as well [1]- to 
provide the nature of the input (raw, window, both).

Then, as __wine_send_input only exposes the INPUT structure, instead of 
going through some translation in user32, the graphics drivers could do 
the send_hardware_message request directly, filling the hw_input_t 
structure themselves with all the custom information we need, and we 
could get rid of this internal function.

Would that go more in the right direction, or is it too much of a change 
to be acceptable?
