> I have the same problem. Any patches ?

There is a possible solution from, which needs to patch both app-emulation/virtualbox-modules and the kernel source. So maintainer probably can't add these patches to this package.

You can get patches from

For app-emulation/virtualbox-modules, fixes_for_changes_in_cpu_tlbstate.patch, fixes_for_mm_struct.patch and fixes_for_module_memory.patch are needed.

For kernel source, local_patches is needed.

Then you need to re-compile kernel and app-emulation/virtualbox-modules.

I can confirm this works with gcc 10.2.0 and kernel 5.8.1.

Please file a new bug if this is still an issue with latest virtualbox-modules versions.
