Host crash on F21 with kernel 4.0-rc3 and VirtualBox 4.3.24

Disclaimer: I build VirtualBox from sources (and have been for a few years).

I am facing an apparently similar situation as the one posted on
https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=66308


My setup:
Fedora 21, kernel.org 4.0-rc2 and -rc3, Windows7 64-bit guest, Dell E6420 laptop.

Description:
After booting the Win7 VM, crash happens usually within < 10 minutes - I got as far as booting
and installing the guest extensions once, but that is all.
Machine locks up hard, with Caps Lock key blinking.

This is the only info in the VBoxSVC.log file before the lockup:

Running the same 4.3.24 under F21 kernel 3.18.7-200.fc21.x86_64 works fine.

At this point there is no support for the 4. rc kernel. Some work has been done to allow for that kernel in the guest but not the host. I expect it in the next maintenance release but no promise.

Crystal clear - I'll keep around my 3.19 kernel.org kernel until formal support for 4.0 RC is announced.

Thanks!

Well that was quick - 4.3.26 appears to have fixed the host crash :D

Currently running a 4.0-rc4 host kernel and a 64-bit Windows7 guest without issues (so far).

Thanks!
