It looks like the logs you are posting are from a physical host running the modesetting driver on top of an intel kms driver. That's AFAIK not a VMware supported configuraion. Nevertheless you shouldn't see any rendering corruption caused by the VMware drivers in the guest.

Could you post the vmware.log file for the VM as well as the
Xorg.0.log file from the virtual machine and the output of
"dmesg" from within the virtual machine.

Thanks,
Thomas
