Just updated the test system to Kernel 4.1-rc7, and the ‘vmnet-patched‘ version of VMware 11.1, and the latest NVIDIA drivers (346.72, and 352.09), compile and install/run OK, as expected..
# uname -a Linux rg6830l 4.1.0-rc7 #1 SMP Mon Jun 8 10:50:51 PDT 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Brief details of changes from -rc6 are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1506.0/04895.html
As it has been so long since the VMware/vmnet patch was necessary, it is worth mentioning again that a complete patch and instructions is available here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware#3.19_kernels_and_up
It appears that there will probably be a 4.1-rc8, and the release of 4.1 Final will be delayed by about one week..
