Doesn't VMWare offer different types of emulated disk controllers?  If so,
that might be the easiest way to narrow the field.  Another thing maybe to
try would be to backport the mpt

Also, it's not VMWare's place to claim "not our problem" when you are
paying for support.  If this doesn't happen on bare metal, it's a VMWare
issue, or they need to demonstrate it's not their issue.  At least that
would be the expectation I have.

There is also a comment on this post indicating someone else with the issue
and who has received unofficial vmware feedback.

And then there is this one with similar symptoms and a workaround:
