Possible fix to mkimg invocation

amd64 vmdk images for 10.1-STABLE and 11.0-CURRENT as found on ftp.freebsd.org
are not actually vmdk format files, but instead appear to be miscreated raw
image files.

Examining release/tools/vmimage.subr for both -head and -stable svn branches,
it appears that the mkimg invocation lost the passing of the -f argument during
a rewrite a few months ago.

Probably need to change all the mkimg invocations in vmimage.subr to include a
"-f ${VMFORMAT}" argument (see attached for possible fix).
