Recently on FreeBSD 10-CURRENT the flag D_PSEUDO was removed and so 
building the kernel module failed since then like this:

'D_PSEUDO' undeclared here (not in a function)

Gladly Ed Schouten who did the change in the FreeBSD kernel also spend 
some time and had a look at the virtualbox character device 
implementation. He wrote a patch to not only fix the compile issue but 
also cleanup the code a bit.

The thread about the issue and testing of the patch is:

The Author of the patch is Ed Schouten <ed at 80386.nl>.

The License of the patch is MIT as he writes at the end of the thread 

As usual the patch has been successfully tested but by a limited number 
of people.
