This is all complete, and is slowly moving into [testing] over the next
half hour or so. Final rebuild list looks like this:
open-vm-tools-modules is a pain in the butt and has NOT been rebuilt
yet. I'll get to this tonight but just a heads up that there will be
some sort of a lag period before this is updated.
Again, please heed the warning from my original message if you're a
custom kernel user. If you can't immediately rebuild your kernel, a
quick *temporary* solution is to either move the module dir yourself or
symlink /usr/lib/modules back to /lib/modules. This *must* be done in
the near future (ominous!).
