The kernel patches floating about on various lists replace a
removed function that has been obsoleted. Namely this one:

static inline atomic_t *skb_datarefp(struct sk_buff *skb)
{
return (atomic_t *)(skb->end);
}

Whilst this is easy to replace, the correct fix would be to fix the
vmware modules not to use this function, and instead use the new
equivalent, which is &skb_shinfo(skb)->dataref
