  * [d79cc9d] d/control: fix postinst missing lsmod/modprobe.
    Upgrades on open-vm-desktop can trigger errors like the following:
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: 5:
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: lsmod: not found
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: 6:
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: modprobe: not found
    The reason is that kmod isn't a dependency of open-vm-tools-desktop and
    could be missing e.g. if you installed it in a system container.
    Once might discuss how useful open-vm-tools-desktop is in that
    environment but a n issue to fix none the less.

  [ Bernd Zeimetz ]
  * [4d3f25f] Fix guest OS reporting for Debian/Buster.
    Without this fix, open-vm-tools report other4xLinux64Guest instead of
    Reason is the output of lsb_release, which outputs:
    $ lsb_release -sd
    Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
    But the code in open-vm-tools expects '10.'.

  * [0f35aee] Add modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop.
    Added Modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop to auto-discover and

  * [dc4e1ce] Load vmwgfx module before vmtoolsd starts.
    As discussed on github in vmware/open-vm-tools#214
    we need to load the vmwgfx module before starting vmtoolsd
    for desktop users. Otherwise it is not able to retrieve the KMS
    resolutions and resizing the VM desktop fails.

  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
  * [71b468f] make vgauth service execution more reliable.
    Since d3d47039 "Start vgauth before vmtoolsd" there is a potential race
    of starting vgauth so early that it might have issues. This was
    discussed back in the day in [1] to [2], but confirmed to be ok by
    We were all somewhat convinced by this, but a bad feeling remained not
    only with me but also with Bernd [4].
    A recent SRU review denial made me rethink all of it and I think we can
    make it safer without thwarting the purpose of the original change.
    Note: Disambiguation of service names used below:
    vgauth - open-vm-tools.vgauth.service
    vmtoolsd - open-vm-tools.service
    fs - systemd-remount-fs.service
    tmp - systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service
    cloud-init - cloud-init-local.service
    Currently we have these dependency requirements:
    - vgauth should be before vmtoolsd
    - cloud init should be before vmtoolsd
    - cloud init has to be really early in general
      - therefore this is using DefaultDependencies=No
    That lead to this graph:
     fs / tmp -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
    And d3d47039 added it to be like:
     fs / tmp -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
     vgauth --|
    But there is no need to have vgauth without any pre-dependencies at all.
    It is only needed to be "before" vmtoolsd, therefore we can make it:
     fs / tmp -> vgauth -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
    That will make execution of vgauth much less error-prone (even though I
    have no hard issue to report) while at the same time holding up all
    known required ordering constraints.
