The Leap 15 patch covers backported changes to kernel APIs, and it is not yet
upstreamed. One openSUSE stabilizes the kernel for Leap 15, which is alpha code,
then I will create a patch for sending upstream.
I can remove "fix_KMS_support.patch", but routine pxenv_restart_tftp() still
exits without a return statement, which leads to
I: Program returns random data in a function
E: virtualbox no-return-in-nonvoid-function
