Actually those follow up commits fix an actual bug, so I was expecting
the person who did the backport to also submit the rest of the set.

FWIW having these patches in but not the cannot hurt.

Hopefully the rest applies cleanly, I don't know.

To be clear I'm talking about also adding the following to patches
to 5.10.y:

02f840f90764 ("vboxsf: Add vboxsf_[create|release]_sf_handle() helpers")
52dfd86aa568 ("vboxsf: Add support for the atomic_open directory-inode op")

I have no idea of these will apply cleanly.

Regards,

Hans
