Hello Dmitry,

as a followup to the last E-Mail I sent about this topic, the complete chain
of patches has been in my personal tree since September of 2018 and there
have been no issues so far as well. I tested a few more games and utilities,
and I was able to test with multiple wheels simultaneously as well.

In the end it's still your decision, but imo those patches should be fine
to pull in.
