Bug Description

I created a module to install the vmware tools when detected via the vmxnet eth driver being used. This should allow us to offer to install the vmware tools and drivers.

I had to make some assumptions in this patch, namely that asking jockey to install the dkma package would also install all the recomends including the tools and toolset (gui) tools.

I see no reason why this couldn't be done for the virtualbox client drivers too.
