Hi all:

I finally got /usr/ports/emulator/vmware3 working on FreeBSD 7.0 i386.
There were 3 changes needed:

1) The avail_end kernel variable no longer exists; I googled and was
able to use Kip Macy's suggested replacement code
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...ry/068377.html

2) One of the assembly routine cannot compile, but fortunately that
routine is unused, so I just commented it out using an "#if 0" block

3) One file uses the old FILEDESC_LOCK and FILEDESC_UNLOCK.
Based on suggestion I found on mailing lists, I believe it is
equivalent to the new FILEDESC_SLOCK and FILEDESC_SUNLOCK.

With the 3 changes, I was able to run vmware3 and boot up Windows XP in it.
It appears stable on my machine.

Here is the patch:
