I don't know if this does the right thing, but it does at least read
the specified file.

I've tried to test it on some arbitrary registry hive files and .reg
files I've managed to dig up or find online, but I'm not sure I'm
using regpatch properly.  I've either got errors like:

$ bin/regpatch -F /tmp/NTUSER.DAT /tmp/test.reg
Error adding new key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Main': WERR_BADFILE
Error adding key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

or no output whatsoever and apparently no change to the hive.

I hope the patch helps, but I'm not sure that just using
start_key->context is the right thing to do.
