Package: virtualbox-guest-dkms
Version: 4.2.16-dfsg-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch upstream
Forwarded: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/12128

Upstream has a patch to fix the issue -- https://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/48529/vbox
It would be very useful to include this since shared folders are
practically broken on 3.11 without it.
