open-vm-tools may be a solution.  The kmod package included is kABI-tracking.


Johnny Hughes has been providing it since early 2008.  I don't
remember if he announced it at some point.

The last version there is dated Oct 2008.  I tried to build the
current version but encountered a (minor?) issue with one kernel
module that was added recently.  I then started working on the issue
with Alan Bartlett.  However, I halted the plan thinking this did not
have a high demand and, therefore, cannot be given a high priority.
