The vmmon kernel module shipped with VMware (Workstation at least, possibly others as well) for TUV 6 is not compatible with the 6.1 kernel, therefore to force VMware to rebuild the module and get a working workstation, carry out the following -

Move the binary module folder so VMware can't find it -

# mv /usr/lib/vmware/modules/binary ~

Force VMware to rebuild new modules -

# vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
