vboxsf 5.0.2 fails to load in OpenSuse 13.2

I'm running OpenSuse 13.2 3.16.7-24-desktop and can no longer access shared folders with the new (5.x) version of the Linux guest additions in OpenSuse.

The reason is that modprobe vboxsf fails due to the undefined symbols RTLogRelGetDefaultInstance(Ex). A workaround is to remove these two definitions from vboxsf/include/log.h and to redefine the two macros in mangling.h to evaluate to (NULL). After recompiling the and loading the module the shared folders work again.

In that case please make sure to update the initrd. The initrd contains the kernel modules for the old (pre-installed) Guest Additions.
