VMWare and Ubuntu: ACPI: I/O resource piix4_smbus error on boot

After installing a brand new Ubuntu 64bit on VMWare i got the message:

ACPI: I/O resource piix4_smbus [0x1040-0x1047] conflicts with ACPI region SMB_ [0x1040-0x104b]

Resolved this by adding

blacklist i2c_piix4

at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
