vmware supplied patch for 2.6.36
Comment 7 Mark R. Pariente 2010-10-23 00:59:54 UTC
I found the attached patch (vmware-7.1-2.6.36-generic.patch) on vmware communities forum:

Applied cleanly against vmware-modules-238.2.ebuild and everything works fine. This patch fixes one more issue (the iommu compile errors) that the two uploaded patches (ioctl.patch, sk_sleep_new.patch) do not address.
Comment 8 Martin Samek 2010-10-27 08:22:21 UTC
Please bump patches to the overlay.
Comment 9 Vadim Kuznetsov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-31 12:27:31 UTC
overlay is patched. changeset 429. Thanks.
Comment 10 Mark R. Pariente 2010-11-04 02:25:22 UTC
Thanks, 238.2-r1 compiles fine against 2.6.36.
