control: tags -1 - patch

Mike and I agree [1] that using "file" is a dead end for multiple
reasons (e.g. security issues and 64-bit apps with 32-bit installers).
So removing the patch tag.

If at all, I would change the wine script to honor the winearch of an
existing wineprefix (by grep'ing system.reg or checking for
drive_c/windows/syswow64/ as winetricks does). However this does only
solve the problem for already installed apps.

Instead the complete WoW64 setup seems to be possible and imo is a
better solution, see #762058.
