Adrian,

In binutils 2.31, relocation type R_X86_64_PLT32 for 32-bit PC-relative
branches has been enabled. With this change, VirtualBox VMs fail to start.

The kernel fix is in commit b21ebf2fb4cde16, and a similar fix is
available for VB in the VB Developers Mailing List and has been applied
to Debian unstable.

I don't understand. the commit is in the kernel since 4.16. which is in
Tumbleweed. I suppose older distro won't receive binutils 2.31. ANd if
so, the commit was backported to 4.4 (LEap 42.*). If need be, we ca
backport to 4.12 (Leap 15).

thanks,
