I have tried to make the virtualbox spec to be the same as other
packages with kmp, but nothing has helped. The VB kmp package continues
to depend on kernel-default, not the specific kernel. If you know how to
do it, please help.

$ grep path /usr/lib/rpm/fileattrs/kmp.attr
%__kmp_path ^/lib/modules/[^/]*/(updates|extra)/.*\.ko(\.gz)?

does not play well with:
$ rpm -ql virtualbox-host-kmp-default
/lib/modules/4.14.3-1-default
/lib/modules/4.14.3-1-default/misc
...

Use the extra dir...

This does not look correct ;):
- MINOR=`sed -n 's;\([0-9]\+\) vboxdrv$;\1;p' /proc/misc`
+ MINOR=`sed -n 's;\([0-9]\+\) vboxdrv$;\1;p' /proc/extra`

I submitted the change to Factory, and the Updates for Leap 42.2 and 42.3; however, the requests have been declined by Andreas Steiger (see boo#1068211). It seems that there is some disagreement within openSUSE regarding when an update should be triggered.

Perhaps I should learn dkms and supply code to build the kernel modules on the fly. As the build time is substantial even for the kmps, I would prefer not to do this.
