vmware balloon: rename module
Dmitry Torokhov [Wed, 22 Sep 2010 20:04:57 +0000 (13:04 -0700)]
In an effort to minimize customer confusion we want to unify naming
convention for VMware-provided kernel modules.  This change renames the
balloon driver from vmware_ballon to vmw_balloon.

We expect to follow this naming convention (vmw_<module_name>) for all
modules that are part of mainline kernel and/or being distributed by
VMware, with the sole exception of vmxnet3 driver (since the name of
mainline driver happens to match with the name used in VMware Tools).
