I hope you have seen my earlier posts in this thread.  If you are not
running the latest kernel (-164), you want to give it a try because it
has patches developed by VMWare engineers for RHEL kernels.  If you
are already running the -164 kernel, you should not be using the
clocksource= option as explained in the upstream bugzilla I cited.
