Installed Kernel 3.19-rc7 on the test system, and the same comments apply as for -rc6. The latest NVIDIA driver (346.35) and VMware 11.0 – with the vmnet patches – install and load/run OK..
Changelog summary here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1502.0/00273.html
$ uname -a Linux rg6830l 3.19.0-rc7 #1 SMP Mon Feb 2 19:00:25 PST 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
It appears that 3.19 Final may be out soon, unless -rc7 produces an unexpected ‘issue’…
