fix the module code of vbox as i did with VMware-Workstation
2.6.41 = 3.1 and they do not recognize this

third-party kernel modules are not suported and so this update was OK and
is the better solution than doing the same epic fail happened with F14 again
that users with new sandy-bdrige-harwdare was forced to a dist-upgrade

this as example is the only needed fix for vmware-tools
