Short answer: Patch is ok with me

Long answer:
We can check if opengl supports vsync(which is what this flag does). WineD3D 
implements vsync using GLX_SGI_video_sync. So if this extension is supported, 
we should set the flag. If it is not supported, do not set it. Our WGL 
implementation does not forward the GLX extension yet, so we do not support 
vsync at the moment, so setting this flag means essentially lying to the app.

However, I think it is safe to pretend vsync support. The worst that may 
happen is that the game renders with a higher framerate, and the hardware 
consumes more power instead of beeing idle. I think both cases are better 
then not running the game at all.

There's one game which runs into internal race conditions if vsync does not 
work(need for speed 3), but that game doesn't even care to check that flag.
