Log message:
xf86-video-vmware: update to 13.3.0.

This release provides dri3 support for recent mesa (XA version 2.4+),
build support for xserver 1.20,
a number of compilation warning fixes,
removal of old Xwayland and Xmir support,
and a couple of minor bug fixes.

Note that linux distros that choose to not compile in kernel
modesetting- and 3D should avoid enabling the vmwgfx linux kernel
module.

As usual, the release is intended to be usable even with old X servers,
but testing for older servers (xserver 1.0+) has been limited to
compile-testing only.
Dedicated functionality testing has been run on xserver 1.19.99 series.

Log message:
Updated xf86-video-vmware to 13.2.1.

This release provides support for adapting to a desktop configuration
(read VMware GUI configuration) exposed using drm connectors rather than using
RandR12+. Since this is the way gnome-shell/Wayland adapts to a desktop
configuration this driver can coexist with an auto-fit multimonitor VMware
gnome-shell/Wayland configuration and therefore enables future open-vm-tools
versions to expose GUI configuration changes through drm connectors at
system start-up time without using the xorg driver as a proxy.

It also contains a compilation fix for ABI 23 from Hans de Goede.

This driver is targeted for new distro releases with X coexisting with
gnome-shell/Wayland. Although it's been fairly well tested there might be
regressions and therefore it's not suitable for LTS-type release updates.

Hans de Goede (1):
      Adapt Block/WakeupHandler signature for ABI 23

Thomas Hellstrom (11):
      vmware/vmwgfx: Expose kernel connector attributes and react to hotplug events
      vmware/vmwgfx: Add missing includes of the config.h header.
      vmware/vmwgfx: Update RandR output properties on hotplug events v2
      vmware/vmwgfx: Add a layout handler v2
      vmware/vmwgfx: Avoid filling the log with modeline printouts
      vmware/vmwgfx: Read the implicit output status from KMS if available.
      vmware/vmwgfx: Disable autolayout if we detect an old resolutionset
      vmware/vmwgfx: Don't require screen objects to run
      vmware: Bump minor to signal availability of new features
      vmware/vmwgfx: Add a missing source file for distribution
      Bump minor for release.
