[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Remove version check from Windows guest additions

Right now, VBoxGuest-win.cpp performs an explicit version check and
refuses to load unless it sees a version it recognizes; that's not the
best behavior --- Windows driver compatibility is very good, and so
existing guest additions should work on newer OSes. I've attached a
patch that removes the upper bound on the check, allowing for forward
compatibility. I'd greatly appreciate if someone could apply it and
issue new signed binaries.
