Dears, I'm facing a huge CPU usage in the follow scenario:

I'm using a 11.0-RC1 amd64 in vbox guest. The virtualbox-ose-additions 
is 5.0.26. When I'm sharing my notebook integrated webcam with guest I 
noted a increase of kernel CPU usage.  But, when I open the webcam the 
CPU usage increases at a point that the machine starts to freeze. The 
camera works but the frame rate is low. I was using the version from 
ports with this behavior but this new version stay with the same 
problem. If I remember, with virtualbox series 4 this problem not 
happens.  So, can it be a webcamd or is really a new version of 
virtualbox problem?
