[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Fix new breakage from Linus

The latest linux kernel headers break compilation of vbox by introducing
a new header file, swabb.h, containing definitions not needed by vbox.
Prevent the new header file from loading:
--- src/VBox/Devices/Storage/swab.h (revision 15711)
+++ src/VBox/Devices/Storage/swab.h (working copy)
@@ -33,6 +33,7 @@
# define _LINUX_BYTEORDER_SWAB_H
+# define _LINUX_BYTEORDER_SWABB_H
It's the c++ compiler that complains about the syntax in swab.h and
swabb.h, so I tried just adding extern "C" to the recipe, but it didn't
fix anything or even change the error message. Can anyone here explain
why it doesn't work?
