Hot on the heel of VMware 12.5.3 comes 12.5.4, and the release notes are here: http://pubs.vmware.com/Release_Notes/en/workstation/12pro/workstation-1254-release-notes.html
As can be seen from these notes, this is an urgent-security-fix release only, and the compatibility with Linux kernel versions, and patch applicability, is the same as for 12.5.3 (see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1937 ) . I can confirm that 12.5.4 runs OK on Kernel 4.10.3, and the 4.11 patchset still applies..
