I don't believe anyone with a commit bit has looked at the patches yet since 
everyone is pretty busy getting this in shape for 5.3 since it's going to 
start the STABLE branch of the 5.x tree.  I'm hoping that the patches will be 
included in 5.4 but that all depends on if I can get someone who really knows 
what they are doing to take a look.  There are still some pthread issues with 
wine on 5.x and some other weird issues on 4.x I was able to get some 
programs to run on 5.x with the August version of wine, and all programs I 
tested to run on 4.x with the June version of wine, the later version again 
have several weird threading issues I'm hoping someone else can take a look
