Ok, That is interesting.

Looking at linux-virt contents I see:
lib/modules/4.19.14-0-virt/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko

Doing some more checks i see this:
./4.19.14-0-virt/misc/vboxsf.ko
./4.19.14-0-virt/misc/vboxguest.ko
./4.19.14-0-virt/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest
./4.19.14-0-virt/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko

This means that we package 2 versions of vboxguest.ko driver. One that''s
part of linux-virt and one part of virtualbox-guest-modules-virt

Looking at file sizes:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 56736 Jan 10 04:17
./kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 492576 Jan 10 04:33 ./misc/vboxguest.ko

It seems that the kernel one is much much smaller. (and it might explain
why vboxsf fails to load)

Could we not build/yank or blacklist the kernel driver?

Thank you,

Gennady
