VMware – New Version of 4.18-rc1 ‘cmdline’ Patch..

As expected, there is another version of the cmdline patch for Kernel 4.18-rc1 – this time from Linus himself.. at  http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1806.2/03011.html

I have applied this, and – as with the previous version –  VMware now behaves correctly..

I should mention that is is not a good idea to try to copy/paste patches from a website newsgroup listing, as the formatting is usually messed up.    You can still access these messages in their original format by accessing the newsgroup the ‘old-fashioned’ way, using an email client such as Thunderbird, at news.gmane.org.   The group is ‘gmane.linux.kernel‘, but be warned – there are many thousands of messages!
