I have been (rather half-heartedly) trying to do this in the last few
weeks, but have not been very successful due to lack of time, and lack
of knowledge about module-assistant and the Debian kernel packages.
Add in vmware's rather twisted way of building the modules (made less
evil by vmware-any-any), and I have to go a long way until I fully
understand the implications of what I'm doing.
Would you be willing to cooperate, or is my knowledge too low to be
useful for you?
