If I understand the change in locking semantics (post SVN r227568?), a 
good number of chunks of 
src/VBox/Runtime/r0drv/freebsd/memobj-r0drv-freebsd.c need updating to 
follow this :-(.

It is now insufficient to hold only the queue lock when calling 
vm_page_unwire or vm_page_free (and maybe others). The page itself must 
now also be locked,
