[opensuse-factory] Virtualbox shared directories no longer work on TW guest since the last (20190403) update
Hello all

Ever since I updated my TW guest installation to TW version 20190403 last week
I am no longer able to access my guest directories on a Leap 15.0 (and a now a
Leap 15.1) host

Reason : IMO is because the vboxsf.ko module did not compile. This might be due
to the fact the directory where the Virtualbox ko modules are stored has moved
lately on the new 5.0.5-1 kernel from :
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra # where shared directories pointing to a Leap
host system work OK
to
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc # where shared directories pointing to a Leap host
system do not work OK

The following is from TW version 20190403 (i.e. virtualbox shared directories
are KO)
TW:/lib/modules/5.0.5-1-default/misc # ls -l

total 13072
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13383560 Apr 4 22:50 vboxguest.ko

I have another setup on a sightly older TW VirtualBox guest installation as a
backup and the my guest directories on my Leap 15.0 (and a now a Leap 15.1)
host work fine.
