[feature-request] Log all loaded drivers currently running on host
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
On Linux host: "lsmod | sort" and equivalent for other host platforms.
This will resolve a lot of trivial issues, such as user running VBox together with coLinux, KVM, or other conflicting driver...
For this to work, there needs to be a "general" log file, that is created when the frontend (VBox GUI or CLI) starts up, and not associated with any VM. It must be done *before* VM is actually started, as in some cases conflicting driver may crash the host, leaving us without a clue.
Alternatively the log for VM can be created when VM is actually started, but before "vboxdrv" starts running it.
- user clicks to run VM
- log is created with essential info logged and saved to disk
- Only now "vboxdrv" must actually start executing. In case of host crash/panic/BSOD, we still would have the log file. (after user reboots)
