You need the 'any-any' patch installed. See 

I just recompiled the support modules for this latest ccrma-rt kernel, and 
with those patches it compiled fine.  Note that the patches must be applied 
to a pristine VMware installation; that means you need to uninstall 
completely, then reinstall, apply the patches, and configure.  The patch 
includes a script and a README on the process.

The patchset is currently at revision 116; that's the one I have running with 
VMware Workstation 6.
