My solution for the 2.6.19 kernel is as follows.

Extract the file /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar
Edit the files vmnet-only/bridge.c and vmnet-only/userif.c and replace
all occurrences of CHECKSUM_HW with CHECKSUM_COMPLETE
Tar up the directory vmnet-only to vmnet.tar and replace the original
with the patched version.

I'm not totally sure that CHECKSUM_COMPLETE is the correct replacement,
but it seems to work for me.

This of course in addition to the removal of the #include <config.h> in
