[vbox-dev] systemd usage incorrect

I see VB installed into /etc/modules-load.d.  These files should be installed 
into /usr/lib/modules-load.d instead.  According to manpage:

       Each configuration file shall be named in the style of program.conf. 
Files in /etc/ override files
       with the same name in /usr/lib/ and /run/. Files in /run/ override files 
with the same name in
       /usr/lib/. Packages should install their configuration files in 
/usr/lib/, files in /etc/ are
       reserved for the local administrator, who may use this logic to override 
the configuration files
       installed from vendor packages.

       If the administrator wants to disable a configuration file supplied by 
the vendor, the recommended
       way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in /etc/modules-load.d/ bearing 
the same filename.
