  * [0f35aee] Add modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop.
    Added Modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop to auto-discover and
    auto-install the driver on Ubuntu via ubuntu-drivers. The driver is then
    installed at installation time and available on first boot for an
    improved user experience (LP: #1819207)
  [ Bernd Zeimetz ]
  * [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.
    Thanks to @thomashvmw @rhertzog (Closes: #924518)

Import patches-unapplied version 2:10.3.5-7 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 0eba19e3921ebed9ccb65b5c3fc1e49547cf504d

New changelog entries:
  [ 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.

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

New changelog entries:
  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
  * [d3d4703] Start vgauth before vmtoolsd.
    VGAuthService needs to be ready when vmtoolsd runs. Certain cases - e.g.
    Site Recovery Manager failover - will need vgauth to be up.
    Therefore add an After=vgauth.service dependency to open-vm-tools.service
    To have vgauth be able start early - and not pull cloud-init back late - it
    is also required to drop default dependencies which according to VMware is
    fine to do so.

New changelog entries:
  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * [db2a364] Ensure vmwgfx module is loaded before start of vmtoolsd.
    This avoids a failure to start the resolutionKMS plugin and it's
    achieved through a drop-in snippet extending open-vm-tools.service
    adding an ExecStartPre directive loading the module prior to
    the start of the service. (Closes: #915031)
  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
  * [e6e0ab8] d/rules: fix dangling symlink of vmware-user.
    Back in 2:9.4.0-1280544-6 vmware-user* was moved to the
    open-vm-tools-desktop package and some follow on fixes moved bits that
    were forgotten like the man page.
    (LP: #1807441)
    There still is a symlink in /usr/bin/vmware-user that is forgotten in
    the base package and broken unless open-vm-tools-desktop is installed.
    Change d/rules to move the symlink as well.
