I committed to changes to rtc and vmware2 in the last few days to make
it compile on recent -current.  There have been a lot of changes since
Feb!!  On my system rtc compiles and kldload and vmware works.  I don't
know if rtc actually works though.  Maybe not.  I'll take a look at your
patch in due course.
