The following modification allows us to build with linux 5.18 series.

#if RTLNX_VER_MIN(5,18,0)
Log6(("vboxNetFltPortOsXmit: netif_rx(%p)\n", pBuf));
err = netif_rx(pBuf);
Log6(("vboxNetFltPortOsXmit: netif_rx_ni(%p)\n", pBuf));
err = netif_rx_ni(pBuf);

I do not get it.
We have virtualbox 6.1.34-4 in repositories since May 30th. That works just fine with linux 5.18.x, no?

Looking at the proposed patch more closely, it seems to only change the logging:

Log6(("vboxNetFltPortOsXmit: netif_rx_ni(%p)\n", pBuf));

which is currently emitted unconditionally of the kernel version, is changed to

Log6(("vboxNetFltPortOsXmit: netif_rx(%p)\n", pBuf));

for kernel versions >= 5.18. I don't think this has any real implications apart from producing slightly better logging output, so feel free to close as won't fix.
