Basically three separate vimage-related efforts are underway, listed in order 
of priority:

1) merging vimage -> head
2) maintaining vimage branch (tracking head)
3) maintaining vimage_7 branch (tracking stable/7)

So you are mosltly right - in both vimage and vimage_7 branches many kernel 
susbsystems do not work (yet) with options VIMAGE enabled.  The current focus 
is on merging the base network stack infrastructure to head, and deal with 
those remaining subsystems later.

IMUNES should work with both latest vimage and vimage_7 kernels from the 
imunes.net/virtnet page, though in general IMUNES mailing list would be a 
more appropriate place to discuss any IMUNES specific issues.
