Build errors for Linux module vboxdrv with 2.6.26-rc1

In Linux kernel 2.6.26-rc1 and later, the handling of page faults has changed. In particular, struct vm_operations_struct has changed, and the symbols NOPAGE_SIGBUS and NOPAGE_OOM no longer exist.

The attached patch allows the kernel module to compile and load for kernel 2.6.26-rc1. It has not been thoroughly tested; however, I was able to load my Windows Me virtual machine without error.

Thanks for this patch. We have to test it first. Running a Windows Me VM is no prove as the fix is only necessary for the Linux guest additions (sharedfolder) kernel module.
