I have verified that upon installing kernel-188.8.131.52-3.fc15.x86_64 from
updates-testing, and then installing the patch in Step 1 of the URL above, and
recompiling the modules, everything works. Just follow the steps at the
URL and you should be good to go.
I _did_ bother to first see if the 184.108.40.206-3 kernel would allow the
unpatched vmware modules to compile and it failed. The patch appears to
