Has the "linux/version.h" changed directories
Yes it did change location. But - every PROPER kernel module source
compiles as it did before. And compared to the Nvidia source crap,
VMware is actually passable. Well, that is an understatement: the vmware
modules, they need no fiddling at all.

If you do however get some version.h related error notice even if you
have made sure you have the kernel-devel packages (it looks like you
do), it must be some kind of higher-level program that tells you about
it, because the compile procedure itself works flawlessy:

I use vmware player. There I need the following trick to get vmware modules compiled:

cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include
ln -s generated/uapi/linux .

And then when I start vmware player, it will correctly find linux/version.h and compile the kernel modules.
