Hi vbox developers!

Another patch to add support for files to VBoxManage createrawvmdk.

VBoxManage: error: File '/vbox/HardDisks/test.img' is no character 
VBoxManage: error: The raw disk vmdk file was not created

The following patch by Pawel Jakub Dawidek adds support for files on 
It should be easy to do the same for Linux and Solaris but this patch 
targets FreeBSD hosts.
