Correct SPP for ESX 4.0 compatibility?

The problem is the documentation seems to be conflicting on which is the last SPP that has firmware components which are compatible with ESX 4.0.

From the HP Download Drivers and Software website, the last compatible SPP for ESX 4.0 was SPP 2012.01, as referenced for these three server / OS combinations:
BL685c G5 running ESX4.0 U1
BL685c G6 running ESX4.0 U1
BL685c G7 running ESX4.0 U3

However, the release notes for SPP2012.01 only indicate support for VMware ESX/ESXi 4.1 & VMware ESXi 5.0 (offline) - no mention of ESX 4.0.
SPP2012.01 release notes (page 19)

Does anyone know which is correct? Is SPP2012.01 the last SPP with firmware components that are compatible with ESX4.0, or is there another version that is the correct one?

The ESX 4.0 and 3.5 support listed on the download page is incorrect and it should be updated.

The support in the release notes is correct.
