VBox Additions install fails under latest CentOS 9 kernel => Fixed in SVN

Been trying to get CentOS 9 working on VBox, and have been having extreme difficulty with getting VBox additions installed. What I eventually discovered:

I was running kernel 5.14.0-142.el9.x86_64 which was the default kernel version installed with the fresh .iso

It errored out every time, the line that popped out in the log file was:

fatal error: drm/drm_irq.h: No such file or directory

I was able to get VBox additions by installing an older kernel version and booting to that.

yum install kernel-5.14.0-124.el9 kernel-devel-5.14.0-124.el9

kernel-5.14.0-124.el9 was the oldest kernel version available in yum, but I was able to install VBox additions running that version.

I should add... I also had issues with Rocky Linux and AlmaLinux if I updated all the packages before trying to install VBox additions.

I should also add that once VBox additions was installed, updating to the latest kernel version, VBox addition continued to work.
