These were both suggested by contacts at VMWare.

The change here to the "vmx" value will prevent the OVA from being used on ESX versions that are older than what we are prepared to support, and is thus a desirable change from a customer experience perspective.

The OS change may be more cosmetic. Eventually there will also be a "rhel8" equivalent, which we may want to switch to.

This should also be backported to the rhcos-4.1 branch.

Is this the right value for non-RHEL based systems (i.e. Fedora)

Great point. In my haste to get this through I did not check on that.

ESXi 6.0 is supported for another year. For FCOS, we may want to consider running on it, which would require setting hardware version 11.
