[Patch to shared folder code proposed by Hans to reduce the line count

I reviewed the patch and made a few changes.  Not yet tested on any
platform, but I am posting my adjusted version so that other people can
test, including on FreeBSD and Haiku which I cannot do easily.  Note
that this applies to the normal VirtualBox tree, not to the packaged
Linux driver.
