Hi Lucas

While working on building the vagrant boxes with FAI, I noticed that
some virtualbox drivers where loaded altough I didn't compile them with

It turns out that the vbox video driver is already included in
the kernel tree and in the buster kernel, and that the vbox shared
folder driver is coming too:

dpkg -L linux-image-4.19.0-8-amd64 | grep 'vbox.*ko'


This means that we have a chance to drop the contrib boxes for bullseyes
and our users will have a much nicer experience ouf of the box using the
official boxes :)

The initial drive for this came from Fedora people, who wanted a better
out of the box experience within VirtualBox for people using their live CD.


You know an upstream is nice when they even accept m68k patches.
