  VMware3 does not build on -CURRENT because of removal of some machine
  dependant headers and changes to the SMP code in the kernel.

  make in the vmware3 port directory with a fresh -CURRENT

  Patches are ready for the headers issue and the software runs 
  smoothly on -CURRENT on a UP system. SMP support is not working.
  Patch for fixing the first issue is at
  SMP support is broken until further updates.
  Since I am not a committer I can't commit the patch. Thanks!
