The attached patch file makes the necessary changes to the VirtualBox 5.1.30 
sources to allow the kernel modules to build with kernel 4.15.

The API changes are of several types:

1. The timer initialization routine init_timer_pinned() no longer exists, and
    is replaced by timer_setup().
2. The timer callback routine calling sequence is changed as is the technique
    for getting the timer information from the callback parameters.
3. The calling sequence for drm_encoder_find() is changed.
4. The calling sequence for the .get and .set members of the module_param_call()
    calls have changed.

This patch is released under the MIT license.
