guest additions do not build with 4.13 kernel

Got an error message while attempting to install guest additions in a Fedora Rawhide guest for the 4.13.0-0.rc0.git2.1.fc27.x86_64 kernel. I am using VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.23-115855.iso for which 4.12 does build. failed: Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong.

Confirmed that it also fails with VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.23-116741.iso (the latest version). Will replace the two attachments just to be safe.

in kernel 4.13 wait_queue_t is renamed to wait_queue_entry_t

You can change it in /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-5.1.23/src/vboxguest-5.1.23/vboxguest/r0drv/linux/waitqueue-r0drv-linux.h

Best regards Damian

Appears to be fixed in 5.1.24 (tested on the 4.13.0-0.rc0.git6.1.fc27.x86_64 kernel). Thanks!
