Modified the title so this could include multiple modules. vmxnet3 is already in the main package, but vsock.ko and vmw_vsock_vmci_transport.ko are not but likely should. There is a vmwgfx driver, too but the target is probably more server type which does not need accelerated gfx. Also right now there is no other drm driver in the main package.

Due to a sync of open-vm-tools and an open MIR on open-vm-tools, these modules are needed in the regular kernel.
