This set of patches adds support of wintun kernel driver
(https://www.wintun.net) to OpenVPN Windows client and server.

While wintun is in beta (currently used version is 0.7), it performs
significantly faster comparison to tap-windows6.

Below are download bandwidth stats reported by iperf3 running on client:

 > iperf3 -c <server-vpn-ip> -t 60 

Server - community openvpn2 (2.4.4)

  tap-windows6  - 396Mbit/s
  wintun        - 677Mbit/s 

Server - propietary openvpn3 with kernel acceleration (in development)

  tap-windows6  - 386Mbit/s
  wintun        - 840Mbit/s

Client version used for tap-windows6 tests is 2.4.8.

To use wintun driver instead of tap-window6, add "windows-driver wintun"
to your VPN config file or openvpn.exe command line.

Ready-made Windows client installer (signed by OpenVPN Inc)
with wintun support could be found here: from http://staging.openvpn.net/openvpn2/.

To build installer yourself, you need a patched version of
openvpn-build, see https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn-build/pull/154.
