[vbox-dev] How VBox Fake WHQL works?

the module itself gets installed but actually is not used by our 
installer. It's some script to disable the WHQL check (the common popups 
for signed but not WHQL certified drivers) while installing
the guest additions in silent mode. This is not intended to be stable
or a real solution but some workaround.
