Sorry, not quite what I meant. That won't work...
I don't think any parameter passed in from GRUB can avoid this.

Also I didn't mean for you to change that either; that controls the the
host's use of the system's real HPET device.
What I really meant is that VMware is emulating a virtual HPET device
and providing that to the guest. I think disabling it would help to
avoid this crash. I'm not familiar with VMware, but for example Qemu
has a -no-hpet argument and Xen has an (hpet 0) option for exactly this.
[I suspect the FreeBSD kernel, since 9.0, inappropriately guesses (based
on IRQ number) what devices to use level-triggered interrupts for and
will try to do this for the HPET; some virtualisation platforms don't
seems to like it].
