mh.. okay.

What about building the module on your own?
For this please install virtualbox-ose-source and then
# m-a -t auto-install virtualbox-ose-source

This module should be located under:

The module above is from linux-modules-extra and is prebuilded.

If the module is builded please modprobe/or insmod it and make sure that 
this and not the other one is loaded. 
(The easiest thing would be: 
rmmod vboxdrv; 
insmod /lib/modules/$KVERS/misc/vboxdrv.ko;

Hopefully this helps to get rid of the error.

Yes.. this bug is well known... and is fixed in svn already. See #462885 
for details.
