Applied to master, thanks.

Note that Debian also has a collection of patches on open-vm-tools, and
at least two of them seem to fix security related issues. Is this stuff
still maintained upstream? They have apparently moved their development
to github, at https://github.com/vmware/open-vm-tools.

Can you check if those patches were merged here already?
