The attached patch adds an x86-64 compatible _ExecuteCommand() implementation for issuing a command to the VMware backdoor.

Rather than significantly modify the code already being used for vmware_mouse to adopt 64-bit wide types, I just tweaked the assembly to remove now-illegal instructions while maintaining compatibility with the existing structure layout.
