So it looks for the VMWare 'vmwgfx' driver and it's not there (I'm not
sure if that driver is something Fedora would be expected to include, or
if it's a 'guest additions' kind of thing). Then it falls back on
'vmwlegacy', which promptly blows up.

ajax, airlied, are we expecting this 'vmwlegacy' driver to work, or
should it be suppressed in favour of vesa or something?
