As indicated in the option descripion (below) Hypervisor support for VMI is
now deprecated and supporting its use is a negative for portability
of your kernel image.  Turn it off.

          As of September 2009, VMware has started a phased retirement
          of this feature from VMware's products. Please see
          feature-removal-schedule.txt for details.  If you are
          planning to enable this option, please note that you cannot
          live migrate a VMI enabled VM to a future VMware product,
          which doesn't support VMI. So if you expect your kernel to
          seamlessly migrate to newer VMware products, keep this
          disabled.
