Merge of WineX's (LGPL licensed) wininet.dll code

Well, I'm spending my fun afternoon trying to get IE to install in Wine
(it breaks in a new and interesting way every time I try this).

Before the patch, it didn't work, couldn't contact download sites. After
the patch, it still doesn't work, and I get this fixme:

fixme:wininet:InternetReadFile This shouldn't be here! We don't support
this kind of connection anymore. Must use NETCON functions, especially
if using SSL

Which seems a bit of a bummer, if IE6 setup needs that type of
connection I think we should still support it really......

I think the problem might be lack of proxy workingness. Am investigating
now. Would be nice to lift proxy details from the http_proxy variable in

One last thing, the patch seemed to have a lot of whitespace no-ops,
running diff with -bB should eliminate some.

thanks -mike
