vbox-kernel-module-src-5.1.28.tar.xz (without vboxpci)

It seems like virtualbox 5.1.28 works without vboxpci as a module! At least on my computer... When I build virtualbox 5.1.28 manually here, it does not automatically generate and build vboxpci, but it builds vboxdrv, vboxnetadp and vboxnetflt. And still my old Windows VM boots, at least...

Attaching the kernel module sources that got generated when I built it on my machine as a vbox-kernel-module-src-5.1.28.tar.xz-file.

Maybe it's a special case with my computer, because it seems like arch lists "vboxpci.ko.gz" as a module in their virtualbox-host-modules 5.1.28 package...
