I've applied the patch with your fixes, and I've always noticed that
VMware seem to leak a bit of memory (occording to top and ps). Running
with 128Mb in a Win2k box it started off at 161Mb process size (140Mb
RSS) and within 5 minutes it had turned into 203Mb process size (still
only 140Mb RSS). Have anyone seen similar behavior, and does anyone
have any pointers to where I can find more info on it?

1. util-linux patch inside int'l kernel patch

I applied the util-linux patch for util-linux-2.9w (available after
applying the int'l patch 2.2.13-2 to the kernel sources) to
util-linux-2.10. It seems to work. But I'm not quite confident to
proceed to a final 'make install' for the new patched util-linux.

Someone can confirm if it will hurt or not?
