I need to change provide_nondkms to false, otherwise this happens:

==> Starting build()... cat: /usr/src/linux/version: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... error making: winesync (winesync-dkms)

I guess that's because I don't have the default kernel installed?

Explanation: Winesync is yet another reimplementation of the NT synchronization primitives for Wine, this time using a new kernel module instead of using existing kernel features or a new syscall. This implementation mimics the original from Windows perfectly (bar any bugs), in contrast to esync and fsync which had some hackily implemented operations. Performance shouldn't be much different from esync and fsync.
