This looks to be a vmware specific thing ... but the upstream released
kernel (for those who run their product) was compiled with the same
version of gcc.

Here is their kernel line:
Linux version 2.6.9-22.0.2.EL (bhcompile at hs20-bc1-1.build.redhat.com)
(gcc version 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2)) #1 Thu Jan 5 17:03:45 EST
2006
