As of today we have a "proof of concept" vmware driver with
basic functions implemented (open/close, define/undefine, create, 
However it currently depends on the esx driver for the VMX handling code.
Has anyone started to think of the needed refactoring ? If any help is needed
to refactor I guess I could find some time to work on it.
