      [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
      * [d79cc9d] d/control: fix postinst missing lsmod/modprobe.
        Upgrades on open-vm-desktop can trigger errors like the following:
        /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: 5:
        /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: lsmod: not found
        /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: 6:
        /var/lib/dpkg/info/open-vm-tools-desktop.postinst: modprobe: not found
        The reason is that kmod isn't a dependency of open-vm-tools-desktop and
        could be missing e.g. if you installed it in a system container.
        Once might discuss how useful open-vm-tools-desktop is in that
        environment but a n issue to fix none the less.

      [ Bernd Zeimetz ]
      * [4d3f25f] Fix guest OS reporting for Debian/Buster.
        Without this fix, open-vm-tools report other4xLinux64Guest instead of
        Debian/Buster.
        Reason is the output of lsb_release, which outputs:
        $ lsb_release -sd
        Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
        But the code in open-vm-tools expects '10.'.
        Thanks to Oliver Kurth (Closes: #934005)
