vboxadd-setup.log reports:

/tmp/vbox.0/regops.c:3866:6: error: ‘struct address_space_operations’ has no member named ‘set_page_dirty’

3866 | .set_page_dirty = set_page_dirty_buffers,

/tmp/vbox.0/regops.c:3866:23: error: ‘set_page_dirty_buffers’ undeclared here (not in a function); did you mean ‘set_page_dirty_nobuffers’?

3866 | .set_page_dirty = set_page_dirty_buffers,

| ~ | set_page_dirty_nobuffers

The preprocessor in regops.c tests for kernel version 5.18.0 or later, near line 3866:

#if RTLNX_VER_MIN(5,18,0)

For the Centos9 kernel I am using, 5.14.0, this needs to be changed to:

#if RTLNX_VER_MIN(5,14,0)
