Another question: should the patch be attached to the bug or is it 
sufficient to provide a link to a mailing list post?

I'm leaning towards the former in which case the definition could be 
amended as such:
  | Bugs with this keyword contain an attachment with a proposed fix. 
  | The fix may be incomplete, break other applications or be otherwise 
  | unacceptable as long as it does fix the symptoms described in the 
  | bug and is not a pure workaround (such as altering Wine's behavior 
  | based on the executable filename, replacing an implemented function 
  | with a stub, etc.).
