maintainer of VirtualBox on openSUSE, I would like to know how to prevent

The "proper" fix would be to reintroduce the ksym() dependencies, i.e.
make the KMPs depend on the kernel ABI checksums rather than the kernel
Which leads to another question: why do we still fight with kabi in
opensuse when we don't leverage from that?
Sidenote: if we don't use kabi, we can drop it and can update to higher
major kernel versions easier, if needed (e.g. once, to the next longterm
FWIW, I update all KMPs with all 13.2 updates. This is a bit tedious.
I did not include virtualbox, as we had a parallel upgrade of it in
I however now started a virtualbox update which should be built against
the current kernel.
