[vbox-dev] Patch for begin(), status() functions in vboxadd-timesync.sh

Hi All,

Pasted below (and attached) is a patch for
src/VBox/Additions/linux/installer/vboxadd-timesync.sh. The patch adds
begin() functions for Arch Linux and Slackware. These were previously
missing causing an error when using "start". The patch also promotes
the status() function previously only defined for Slackware to the
"top-level".

Thanks,
Bjorn Buckwalter
