The virtualbox-module vboxdrv.ko won't modprobe:
FATAL: Error inserting vboxdrv (/lib/modules/2.6.25-gentoo-r1-2/misc/vboxdrv.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

And dmesg: 
vboxdrv: Unknown symbol change_page_attr

At compilation-time of the module:
WARNING: //lib/modules/2.6.25-gentoo-r1-2/misc/vboxdrv.ko needs unknown symbol change_page_attr

Reproducible: Always
