    vmware modules can't build after latest update

    It seems the update broke vmware modules. I get this error when vmware tyring to rebuild its modules.

    /tmp/modconfig-0t5cgZ/vmnet-only/userif.c:577:17: error: ?skb_frag_t? {aka ?const struct bio_vec?} has no member named ?size?

    I had no issues building with the last kernel.

    So it just seems to be the 5.4 kernel update. If I use the 5.3 kernel before the update vmware still works just fine. It seems the issue the the: linux-image-5.4.0-kali2-amd64 or the headers. Not sure what changed. I opened a bug for this issue.
