Not a specific answer, but you've provided the first major steps to debugging so I'll give you the bounty :)

comment VMware Fusion Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server - Soft Lockup CPU Stuck
Thanks for the suggestion. Given that your suggestion strays from the chosen Ubuntu path (ie: not using the official distro kernel) I would say that at that point the problem either lies with VMWare (probably) or Ubuntu (much less likely). While I'd love a solution, going too far off the mainstream path into the weeds is too daunting to be practical.

I have upgraded the 12.04 distribution to the latest kernel as of Nov 26, 2012 (3.2.0-33-generic) and recompiled/reinstalled the vmware tools to no avail - the problem still exists.

comment VMware Fusion Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server - Soft Lockup CPU Stuck
I'm not sure what a 'Stuck Problem' is, but I'm guessing you mean that your CPU usage is maximized. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer, but I am seeing a similar issue using VMWare Fusion 5.0.2 and Ubuntu Server 12.04. Originally, I set VMWare to give my VM four cores, but when it went down, it brought my host to 400% CPU usage*, so I tried two cores which eventually resulted in 200% CPU usage* and finally I've resorted to a single core which freezes and consumes 'only' 100% of my host CPU*. Help would be greatly appreciated.. * as indicated by Activity Monitor
