You don't need to downgrade for the whole OS, you can just do it for
VMware.  See the procedure in the first comment in this bug
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=3884.  I have done that and it
works fine.  Just remember that if you update vmware, the edits to
vmware-hostd will be undone, so you need to redo them.
