Pardon for barging in the thread but I've been running VBox 5.0.8 with
4 VMs at my work since January without any problems (so far, at least)

[~]>pkg info | grep virtual
vde2-2.3.2_2                   User-mode virtual ethernet infrastructure
virtualbox-ose-5.0.8           General-purpose full virtualizer=20

[~]>ps ax
  PID TT  STAT         TIME COMMAND
  944  -  S        22:49.70 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxXPCOMIPCD
  952  -  S        66:11.24 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxSVC
  934 v0- I      3065:24.90 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless
-startvm DBServer --vrde off 935 v0- I
13068:32.29 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless -startvm WEBServer
--vrde off 936 v0- I
8552:00.08 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless -startvm EXTServer
--vrde off
15004  0- S       451:17.91 /usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless
-startvm xDBServer --vrde off


On my desktop, I'm on V 5.0.14, also without any problems.

It's a fact that the VMs at work are for development but they are
heavily used by the team.

All FreeBSDs mentioned above are 10.2 STABLE.

Of course, in all these cases, I adapted the port to compile and test.

When you say "the kernel module doesn't work properly", what exactly do
you mean?
