Thanks for the report. You can find the fix in r42164. You can apply this fix manually to the guest module and after that execute

/etc/init.d/vboxadd setup

This should successfully compile the guest modules.

Or you can try this test build from the stable branch (usual disclaimer applies):

Expanding on the above, the following commands can be used:

cd /usr/src/vboxguest-4.1.18/vboxvideo
sudo mv vboxvideo_drm.c vboxvideo_drm.c.orig
sudo svn export -r 42164 https://www.virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Additions/linux/drm/vboxvideo_drm.c
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup
