xf86-video-vmware is an Xorg display driver for VMware's virtual SGA device.

This release provides support for adapting to a desktop configuration
(read VMware GUI configuration) exposed using drm connectors rather than using
RandR12+. Since this is the way gnome-shell/Wayland adapts to a desktop
configuration this driver can coexist with an auto-fit multimonitor VMware
gnome-shell/Wayland configuration and therefore enables future open-vm-tools
versions to expose GUI configuration changes through drm connectors at
system start-up time without using the xorg driver as a proxy.

It also contains a compilation fix for ABI 23 from Hans de Goede.

This driver is targeted for new distro releases with X coexisting with
gnome-shell/Wayland. Although it's been fairly well tested there might be
regressions and therefore it's not suitable for LTS-type release updates.

      Adapt Block/WakeupHandler signature for ABI 23
