VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range
of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a
Linux system.
This package provides the source code for the virtualbox kernel module.
The virtualbox package is also required in order to make use of these
modules. Kernel sources or headers are required to compile this module.
The source is placed under /usr/src, and after decompression it can
be built to produce a virtualbox-modules-_KVERS_ providing
"virtualbox-modules" package.

with how upstream builds it.
- the proper patch should be on upstream changeset 57410
but we don't need it anymore

virtualbox (4.3.26-dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Adam Conrad ]
* Re-work the packaging to account for the kernel modules being shipped in
the master kernel packages, removing the need for dkms (LP: #1434579):
- Make the dkms package provide a virtual package matching what the
kernel packages provide to indicate that they ship the dkms modules.
- Add an alternate dep from the utils package to the virtual driver.
- Make the x11 driver package associate with the VGA controller PCI ID.
