No, it's not a regression. I misread your first email btw, you have to
unload the kvm-intel kernel module to use VMware.

VMware is a binary kernel module that's out of kernel. KVM is not
misbehaving and the fact that VMware breaks when the KVM module is
loaded isn't our problem. If they submitted their code for inclusion in
mainline, we could possibly come up with solution for arbitrating who is
using VT.
