Apparently the linux kernel 3.7.0 has reorganized some of the include
header files.

Trying to build virtualbox-modules-4.2.4 on gentoo with
gentoo-sources-2.7.0 fails late in the build with "missing" include
files.  Examination of the error shows that the 3.7.0 kernel has moved
some of the files and/or fails to copy some headers into the

For example: include/asm-generic/types.h is not copied or moved
             include/uapi/types.h is moves somewhere

I filed a bug at the gentoo bugzilla: BZ:447302

is there a beta version or download of sources that works with the Linux
3.7.0 kernel?
