The staticly linked userspace binary loader seems like the best solution
to me. For binary distributions of Wine there's no need to compile
kernels or modules at install time, no need to be root to install and no
need for us to write and maintain kernel code for N different operating
systems. Please let me know if you think of a way to break this solution ;)

Anyway, thanks for at least trying to keep these kind of changes for new
major versions.
