  [ Jean-Baptiste Lallement ]
  * [0f35aee] Add modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop.
    Added Modaliases to open-vm-tools-desktop to auto-discover and
    auto-install the driver on Ubuntu via ubuntu-drivers. The driver is then
    installed at installation time and available on first boot for an
    improved user experience (LP: #1819207)

  [ Bernd Zeimetz ]
  * [dc4e1ce] Load vmwgfx module before vmtoolsd starts.
    As discussed on github in vmware/open-vm-tools#214
    we need to load the vmwgfx module before starting vmtoolsd
    for desktop users. Otherwise it is not able to retrieve the KMS
    resolutions and resizing the VM desktop fails.
    Thanks to @thomashvmw @rhertzog (Closes: #924518)
