With package update to 6.0.14-4 it is not possible to build guest modules for linux-lts.

Additional info:

Kernels lower than 5.1 can't compile vboxsf in v12 or higher.

Steps to reproduce:

Try to compile vboxsf later than 30d88e3b8780989c610f6b8b8723307e247b07ca with any kernel below 5.1


Provide a vboxsf based on 30d88e3b8780989c610f6b8b8723307e247b07ca for kernels lower than 5.1 and you may provide the latest master for kernels equal or higher than 5.1.

This task depends upon
