fail to install extension pack because of VERR_NOT_SAME_DEVICE

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
When trying to install a new version of the Oracle VM Virtualbox Extension Pack, I get the following error:
Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to uninstall "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack": The installer failed with exit code 1: VBoxExtPackHelperApp: error: Failed to rename the extension pack directory: VERR_NOT_SAME_DEVICE VBoxManage: error: rcExit=1 Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to install "/usr/share/virtualbox/extensions/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.10.vbox-extpack": Extension pack 'Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack' is already installed. In case of a reinstallation, please uninstall it first
I have /usr on a different partition than the rest of my system, I assume it is calling a rename() and getting errno = EXDEV. This should be handled properly instead of crashing.
