VMware just released 9 patches for ESX 3.5 and 1 for ESX 3i! You can download them here for 3.5 and here for 3i.
The patch for ESX 3i fixes the following:

- VMware Virtual Center does not properly record the number of processors on Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 7200 series based hosts.
- An issue with the BCM5709 firmware where ping requests sometimes fail after loading and unloading the bnx2 driver.
- An issue with the bnx2 driver where a device using the bnx2 driver fails to connect to the a 100 Mbps network during the network autonegotiation period after system boot.
The patches for ESX 3.5 contain the following:
- Update to the bnx2 Driver
