kBuild calls the Makefile.kmk in src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/ and uses a file named src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/files_vboxvfs to copy the needed sources and headers which are needed to compile vboxvfs. The files get copied to out/linux.amd64/release/bin/additions/src/vboxvfs/. It copies a the src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/Makefile.module to this directory too.

The problem is that in src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfolders/files_vboxvfs serveral headers and sources are missing. And they are missing in src/VBox/Additions/linux/sharedfoldes/Makefile.module too. So if you want to compile vboxadd in out/linux.amd64/release/bin/additions/src/vboxvfs/ you are not able to compile it cause there are missing headers and source files. The attached patch adds the missing files. Then vboxvfs will compile.
