I've experienced the same error. I found a patch correcting this bug for
kernel 3.7+, but then I got an error on linux-headers included file
iommu.h:272:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘ERR_PTR’
This bug isn't strictly on virtualbox-dkms, but to resolve it, you just
have to add
to /usr/src/linux-headers-<version>-common/include/linux/iommu.h, at
line 25 (after 2 other #include).
I joined the patch file, but i don't think it's in Debian standards (I
found it on another distro mailing list), but it works if you apply it
I'm sorry if this report is bad or something, as it's my first. I hope
this could be useful to anyone.
