to follow up my own mail, minimal hacks on vmmon/vmnet got the linux VMware
4.5 versions to compile:

	uvm_km_valloc() to uvm_km_alloc()
	uvm_km_alloc/free() add extra UVM_KFM_WIRED flag

these installed ok with modload.

this permitted a non-installed state of VMware 4.5 to run, once the missing
shared libs were in a path suitable for linux emulation.

However I cannot load a 30 day test VMware 4 licence, nor turn 'on' the
emulator, At turn-on it fails with:

$ ./vmware
Gdk-ERROR **: Fatal IO error 9 (Bad file descriptor) on X server :0.0.
