Based on the response I got to some patches that I submitted in the
2.6.24-gitX ( == 2.6.25-pre-rc1) time frame, my guess is NO. If you wait
until Linus issues 2.6.26-rc1, then file a bug report, it may be more successful.
In my case, I didn't need the vbox devs to fix it, I was just trying to be
helpful to the community.
This has not been tested, but you might try adding the following at the
beginning of src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/regops.c:
#define NOPAGE_SIGBUS VM_FAULT_SIGBUS
