    22For the -p4 patches, I changed to /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/ and applied them like "sudo patch -p4 < ~/path/to/vb-6.0.24-kernel-5.8-p4-1.patch" on each patch.   The other patch, "sudo patch -p5 < ~/path/to/vb-6.0.24-kernel-5.8-p5-1.patch".   Patch 2 rejects 1 line, but it's a one-line comment saying (paraphrasing) "todo, kernel 5.8 always applies NX (No eXecute) anyway" so no problem on the reject.

    4 The sharedfolder patch, I didn't use it but I suppose it's for guest extensions?  Included it if you do want to try patching guest extensions, but I didn't try it.  I'm guessing it's possible to run 6.1.x guest additions if I need to run a 5.8+ VM (running non-matching guest additions is likely not supported, but neither is 5.0.x series anyway.)
