Patches are sent to wine-patches at winehq.org. Alexandre (the
maintainer), picks the patches he thinks are well implemented and
clean, tests them to make sure they don't break the conformance tests,
and apply them to Wine daily.

If the patch is not acceptable, it isn't applied. Lei needs to revise
the patch, possibly adding a conformance test, or reworking the patch.

That's bug 12076 (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12076).
Shouldn't be to difficult to implement, if you know C.
